Terry and Sue join Lynette for a Father’s Day story and a special gift at the end of the show. Terry and Sue are parents of two sons. One of their son’s has autism. He is a successful early twenties man. This awesome autism story is one of choices and regrets, pride and fear. Terry and Sue freely share their learnings and lay a path for success that other parents can follow.
