HARRISBURG, Pa., April 2, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Local business owner and mother of an autistic son, Jeannette
Magaro founded Autism in Classrooms to not only educate teachers, coaches, and other students but to also raise awareness of individuals on the spectrum who possess such amazing gifts and talents in STEM, music, and the arts. While autistic individuals sometimes are known to others for being deficient and different, Magaro wants to "make a difference by celebrating brilliance."
This is a personal mission for Magaro, whose child, Luciano, now eleven was diagnosed at age ten. Magaro learned quickly that autism has such a stigma and that many are misinformed as to what it actually looks like.
"With one in every 37 boys diagnosed with autism and one in 59 children, there is a huge need to educate others that are misinformed and set the story straight," says Jeannette Magaro, Founder, Austim in Classrooms. "Shedding light on autism, and providing real solutions, could not be done without bravely telling own our family's very personal story and daily struggles."
Magaro and her son wrote a book that is a powerful tool into the mind of the main character, written so simply about such a complex world in which the character lives. "My Life with Gary" will be distributed in classrooms throughout the United States and is due out later this month by donation only.
