Myrenna – Aurora, CO

Myrenna is an Aurora resident who fought for her son’s proper Asperger’s diagnosis and school placement. After several years of doctor’s visits, extensive paperwork, and conversations with school officials, she finally got him the help he deserved.  Now she hopes to increase awareness by sharing her HealthStory.

“The doctors in particular need to be educated in the knowledge that you have to be very careful how you communicate with children who have a developmental disability… children do get misdiagnosed because they won’t always understand.  My advice is EDUCATE YOURSELF.”
