Schilling on living with Autism
Shonda Schilling, the wife of former Red Sox pitcher Kurt Schilling speaks tonight at the Meeting Street School about being the parent of a child with Asperger’s Syndrome, a high functioning form of Autism.
Schilling has written a personal account of her experiences, which event organizers say has struck a chord with many parents of autistic children. More than 200 people have already signed up to attend the talk marking the start of Autism Awareness Month.
Roughly 1 out of every 110 children born in the United States today will be affected by some form of Autism, according to the Federal Centers for Disease Control.
