Confronting ignorance about autism. more...
Pam Newell speaks about confronting others who are ignorant of issues surrounding autism and who mistreat affected individuals.
Pam is a former early childhood educator and is the proud parent to three wonderful children. Pam has a daughter and fraternal twin boys that keep her busy on a daily basis. Brandon (who is a fraternal twin) is currently seven years old and has high functioning autism. Pam's extensive classroom experience as a general education teacher gave her the incredible opportunity to work with children who have autism. Years later, Pam found her classroom experience to be extremely beneficial as her own son learns to manage life with autism.
