SAN ANTONIO - The Kronkosky Charitable Foundation on Tuesday unveiled Autism Lifeline Links — a first-of-its-kind single point of access for families and those dealing with autism.

It’s a coalition of agencies and organizations that can help provide information, therapy and social services with the click of a mouse.

Linda Fierro said dealing with her 4-year-old son Joseph’s autism is a daily struggle. It’s a give-and-take that is easier to cope with after his therapy sessions.

“We live in an autism world because of my son. We have to learn to adapt to his life and he has to learn to adapt to ours,” Fierro said.

Fierro said finding therapy sessions for her son was another struggle.

“Once you get the diagnosis, it’s finding the resources to provide my child the therapy he needs so we can start communicating,” she said. “It may help me know where to go or who to contact, mainly for assistance or direction.”

The Autism Lifeline Links website was created to streamline access, eliminate wait times and help break down barriers for thousands of individuals and families dealing with autism.
