A Message from the Founder

My name is Netra Ford and in 2014, my son, Neiman was diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder at the age of 2 years old. The pediatric neurologist told me that my son's case was mild to moderate and that he may or may not speak. I was also told that he would require intensive therapy and a host of other treatments. Neiman was nonverbal for over a year, then he began to improve with speech, occupational and play therapy. Neiman is now 8 years old and he has language that has developed tremendously over the years. He can read and write well beyond his age. We still have some challenges, but the goal of Exceeding Autism is to let everyone that I encounter know that there is hope beyond the diagnosis. Every single day, the organization is working to empower our families and clients to EXCEED Autism.
