Alyssa at Age 14
Alyssa, who has a diagnosis of Autism, first appeared in the Harbor Regional Center video, Alyssa at Age 8. We return to revisit Alyssa at age 14. She has developed a big interest in 'all things Disney.' Alyssa and her mother, Jean, tell us that as she entered adolescence, Alyssa experienced some difficulties while attending middle school. Her parents worked with their school district to develop a new plan, for Alyssa to attend a non-public special school. She looks forward to becoming increasingly independent as she grows older.
