Having a child with autism, Gleason is dedicated to helping others gain a better understanding for the disorder. Not only will increased awareness aid families in recognizing the signs of autism in their loved ones, it will also help other people be more compassionate when they encounter children or adults with the disorder. In her book, Gleason shares the personal struggles she and her family went through with their son, not knowing he had the disorder and finally getting the diagnosis. Today, their son is thriving and Gleason says that she is “more patient, more compassionate, stronger and wiser because of him.”
