What Florida Mom Wants You to Know About Parenting a Kid With Autism

Inspirational videos of people with autism doing amazing things are shared all over social media. But Leigh Merryday Porch believes that these viral stories can sometimes be detrimental to those living with autism. Porch, who's the mother of a 10-year-old with autism, wants other parents to know there's not a formula to parenting a child with the condition. "You have to celebrate that child and their accomplishments and reach a point of acceptance while continuing to encourage them to be the most they're capable of being," she said.
