FORT BEND COUNTY (Covering Katy News) – Fort Bend County based Hope For Three Autism Advocates will honor phenomenal fathers over Father’s Day weekend, June 16 and 17, by posting inspirational stories, quotes, and pictures of Fort Bend dads of children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). The posts will be on the organization’s Facebook page.
Hope For Three, a local nonprofit and autism advocacy group, was established to raise community awareness and provide resources and support, in the form of financial aid, to families with children diagnosed with ASD.
Guy Walker, a father of two including one on the autism spectrum, is one of several “au-some” fathers being honored on Hope For Three’s Facebook.
“Guy is a loving father and has been there for everything,” says wife Dana Walker.
The Walker’s have two children, one of which has ASD. All parents spend their time working on behalf of their children. Whether it is doctor’s appointments or teacher conferences, a parent’s job is tireless. When one or more of those children have ASD, parents must work especially hard to be sure their needs are being met in school, working with occupational therapists and doctors, and be sure their neuro-typical children are not left out.
“Guy is an amazing advocate and feels that having a child with autism has made him more humble and sensitive to other’s needs. He would not have his life any other way.” Help honor fathers and join Hope For Three on Facebook.com/HopeForThree.
Hope For Three is based in Stafford and provides help and hope for families by hosting educational programs, respite for parents and siblings, and tons of free resources. For more information or ways to help, 281-245-0640 or visit HopeForThree.org.
