I was then on the way to Jacksonville to stay with friends, and midway I stopped in Roseburg where I shared an all-too-quick visit with Patsy Roberts at the Douglas Education Service District Office. She is a Behavior Specialist serving K-12 as an Autism Specialist. Patsy loaded me up with more information and resources for people to connect with in Southern Oregon either coming or going on my adventure. Without a doubt, Patsy concurred that caregivers are so weary and yet painfully unsupported. We explored the unmet need, felt connected even after a breif visit and before you know it I was on the road again feeling like I have another service provider who ‘gets’ what I am up to in my hope to serve and suppport those who love and care for someone with autism.
