I am a parent of an autistic 21 year old. When my son was diagnosed by Watson back in 1994, we were stunned and honestly didn't hold out much hope for him. Though my son has obviously NOT been cured, he has progressed remarkably well, mainly due to the education services provided by the Watson people.
In addition to the wonderful service provided by Watson, this institution helps train special education teachers in individual school districts. Watson has been as such an inspiration, I can only hope that they continue to do their work at the same high standard that my son expereinced.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Continue to expand its main campus size and further grow its' teacher training program
