Meet the McRees
Autism ETC’s Family of the Month
Imagine driving 90 miles one way, 5 days a week, so your child can receive the therapy he desperately needs. This is what the McRee family has done for almost three years to receive services at the Autism ETC Nashville location. The McRee family includes Aaron (dad), Kimberly (mom), Liam who is six years old and baby brother Logan, who is 10 months old.
Liam’s story begins when he was about 5 months old. Kimberly started noticing things did not seem quite right with him. “I talked to my pediatrician about my concerns, but she told me not to worry,” said Kimberly. “But the abnormalities continued, and we changed pediatricians. Our new physician recommended we go to Vanderbilt for a diagnostic evaluation. Liam was diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder when he was 3 years old.” Kimberly went on to say, “Liam started the preschool program at Vanderbilt, but continued to have behavioral issues. I felt like he needed one-on-one help so I started looking for services on the internet. I googled behavioral therapy
