Dr Mary speaks with Gaile Valcho about how to involve your community in understanding and supporting those with autism, especially first responders. She is a wife and mom to a teenage autistic boy. She has over a decade of experience in the autism community and has a certification in a Master IEP training.

Gaile and her husband founded, The Brady Valcho Autism Foundation in 2022 to help families in her community find much needed resources and provide scholarships to families for autism summer camps. Her and husband are also the founders of The Holly Springs Autism Acceptance Day Event held each fall. Part of the Foundation’s mission is to provide free autism trainings to first responders and area businesses to help others engage with the autistic population.
