Autism Friendly Business
I’m a parent of a 17-year-old daughter whom received a late diagnosis of Autism at the age of 10. It was hard for me to get the care I needed for my daughter.
I wondered how many other parents in the Autism community were growing frustrated and overwhelmed at not obtaining the help they were seeking. So I decided to embark on this journey by creating a Home Care business to help parents who have children affected by Autism and those who may need some relief time and an extra hand around the home. My goal is to reassure all families that have been impacted by Autism know that you are not alone and we can embark on this journey together one home at a time. My hope is that Onetouch will be beneficial and helpful to all.
