As a speech-language pathologist with more than 17 years of experience, I thought I had seen it all. I was starting to wonder, what’s next for me? A specialty? A career change? A facility change?

The connection between Teddy and my nephew—recently diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder—was remarkable.
