SANDY CAY INC
May 31, 2010

I continue to be amazed by the director of Sandy Cay Inc. The birth of her son, who was later diagnosed with both autism and tubular sclerosis, has sparked a passion in her to assist other families with challenges. Both Sandy Cay, INC and The Bryan Center (school) have been meeting the needs of families of autistic children for 10 years as a result of her dedication. With the assistance of many competent and creative women (and men) children are gaining language and social skills to grow and be part of their own families and the larger community.
