Michele Shilvock Lannon has been a part of our autism journey, and our family, for more than 16 years. She came into our lives when our daughter was just 3.5 years old and has seen us through all the major milestones—preschool, the elementary and high school years (and every IEP), getting her first job, and her first 2 years of university. Our daughter is now 20 years old, and living away at school, and when she needs advice or support, she still reaches out to Michele.
