Advocate For Hope

While Travis Hergert and his wife, Kim, had their suspicions, it didn’t lessen the difficulty of the day they received the news about their eldest son, Brody. 

In July 2016, Brody was diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder.

“It was a difficult day because there still was a lot unknown,” Travis said. “But, as a family, we were going to do everything we needed to help him.”

Brody’s language skills were delayed by possible hearing loss since birth. He struggled making eye contact, as well as with sentence structure and basic conversation with others. The Hergert family sought services at the One Vision Children’s Autism Center more than two years agoa to help Brody — now 6 years old — develop his language and social skills, areas Travis said the CAC helped Brody make huge strides. 

“The center and its staff have done so much for our family in the growth and development of our son,” Travis said. 

YOU can help families like Brody’s receive support through the Children’s Autism Center by getting involved and advocating to give the gift of hope.
