Chicago Parent has an uplifting article about Maurice Snell. Snell was diagnosed with autism as a kid, but never let that diagnosis limit his future.
He was able to graduate from college and now works at Easter Seals helping other people with autism. He has a remarkable ear for music and started a band with another young man he met at Easter Seals. They now perform together at autism events and spread a message of hope. Here's what Snell told Chicago Parent:
"When I see new kids, I see hope. There is no cure for autism, you're stuck with it, but I'm not ashamed and I tell this to many of the families. I give them stories of hope."You can check out the full article online here and view a video by Chicago Parent about Snell and his band below:
