"We really feel like the parents shouldn't have to re-invent the wheel when we've got parents around that have been through it and know how to officially handle these situations as they come up," said Cindy Dircks, Co-President of the East Central Iowa Autism Society.
As for the Beauchamps, they hope World Autism Awareness Day truly brings awareness of the disorder.
"We can start making a difference and maybe next year there will be families that are closer to recovery because of that," said Becky.
The East Central Iowa Autism Society hosts a coffee talk each month to discuss autism.
The next one is Saturday, April 13th at their office in Marion.
