Moscow, ID: Parents start autism school; families are struggling

MOSCOW, Idaho (AP) —…"We knew Henry needed more than we were able to give him, and we kind of figured we're not the only family like that," Merilee said. "Special needs families can be isolated sometimes, but we knew there were other families struggling."

Faris said Merilee's father also knew of another child on the autism spectrum, so the three adults, among others, came up with the notion to start a school for young children with developmental delays and other disabilities. The Jubilee School, started in September, now has nearly one year on the books.
