The Natale Family
When our son was 3 he was diagnosed with a learning delay. When he was 6 he was diagnosed with ADHD. When he was 8 he was diagnosed with a cognitive disability. When he was 12 he was diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder and Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. However, through all the ups and downs, he is a HUGE blessing to our family and we love him.
The Gathering will be a place where he can grow. Our son is very social and loves the outdoors. He also loves animals, especially horses. The Gathering would also help us by giving us a needed break to spend time with each other, with other family members, to attend social outings that he would not be comfortable at or able to understand. The Gathering would be a help to us all by providing a much-needed respite.
