About the Founders:
In 2000, James and Wendy Di Buo's son was diagnosed with Autism and they realized there were limited resources in this area for children with disabilities. Together, they helped lead the local community in passing a referendum that required the county to no longer appoint but elect its school board. In addition, they became activists for children with disabilities. They founded the Autistic Children's Support Group of Worcester County in 2001 so parents would have a place to seek support for their children. The group became Incorporated and a 501(c)(3) Organization in 2002.
