lisaheldLisa Helt and her husband Charlie Helt are parents of two children: Halah, age 15 typical developing; and Mitch, age 14 with non-verbal autism.   Although they had tried many different kinds of therapies with Mitch, it wasn't until they tried RPM and realized that their son was not cognitively impaired that they finally did what helped him the most  --  accepted him for who he was and talked to him age appropriately.  With the help of a wonderful school district, Mitch is now mainstreamed in all of his 8th grade classes. Charlie and Lisa believe that all children/adults with non-verbal autism are intelligent and can be taught age appropriate curriculum.
