Video: Clark finds local program through Easter Seals to help his autism

-


Clark Kipp is 4 and half years old. He goes to school, interacts with his teachers and classmates but just a few years ago, Clark’s parents started to notice a change. Instead of continuing to move forward in his development, he started to go back.

” He used to be able to throw a ball to us and say a few words and then he completely regressed,” said mother Leslie Kipp.

Just before his second birthday, Clark was diagnosed with autism, a disease affecting one out of one hundred and ten children in the U.S. Leslie Kipp is Clark’s mom. After learning of his diagnosis she immediately began to seek out programs to help her son.

“When we first came here he wasn’t a child that would sit down at a table,” said Kipp. “Now he will sit down and have circle time which is a pretty basic skill but a skill you need in life.”
