Rhonda Brunett
Rhonda Brunett and husband Rick are the proud parents of 13-year old son Jordan, who was diagnosed with Autism at age three.

Little did they know, that what began, as a loving way to preserve family memories, would result in documentation of Jordan's life as an Autistic child.

Rhonda believes that it is her purpose in life to serve as a passionate advocate for Autism. In the last several years, she's developed programs to help communicate and educate, which include The Autism Connection, a teaching team providing workshops and in-service presentations and Speak Today, a local access television show. Hosting for Autism One Radio now opens the door for Rhonda to reach out with yet another forum.
