Jamila Tucker-Mulero joins the Fiction Addiction podcast and discusses her journey as an author and autism advocate.
I am a wife, mother of two boys, three bonus kids (step kids) and my bonus grandson.
I worked as a Patient Service Rep for 15 years until I had to stop working to take care of my youngest son who has autism.
I decided that autism would not become a problem in my life it will be my purpose.
I wrote Jay Just Wants to Play based off an experience my son had. From that experience I wrote the book and started an Autism family support group called Autism R.E.C (Resources, Encouragement & Coping)
Mission Statement: The mission of Autism R.E.C is to provide community education programs, critical resources, recreational activities, and support services to the families of autistic children.
Vision Statement: We envision a world where families of all autistic children receive support they need to ensure they and their children live the fullest lives possible in spite of the challenges of autism.
