Lighthouse Autism Center and ABC 57

MISHAWAKA, Ind. — Some studies say as many as 1 in 50 children have autism. The Lighthouse Autism Center on Edison Lakes Parkway in Mishawaka is working to educate parents on the early signs of autism. Early intervention can mean a better outcome for the child.

When Lisa Del Prete, a mother of six, heard the word autism she says she was in denial.

She noticed her fifth child just wasn’t acting like the others, but she told herself to just “wait and see.”

Now she wishes she had taken action much earlier.

“I was scared. I didn’t want to tell anyone. I didn’t know what it meant. I didn’t even know who to call,” said Lisa Del Prete.

If you find yourself in this situation, please visit our Early Intervention page to learn about what signs to look for and what steps to take.

Together, we can unlock your child’s potential
