Hi, my name is Susan Bolig. I am excited to start working as a Regional Coordinator for Parent to Parent of Pa. I am a parent to a child with autism and I remember when my son was diagnosed and my roller coaster ride had begun. I was experiencing many different emotions and had so many questions and concerns. I was trying to learn everything about treatments and services and then I had to learn how to be an advocate for my son. I became involved in an autism support group, which I then facilitated for 5 years, planning speakers and family activities. I became a peer supporter for Parent to Parent a few years ago, knowing the importance of having mentors, who became friends, was such a valuable addition to my life, to help support me, find resources and educate me about autism. My son is now 15 years old and is part of The Strikers Bowling Team in which I founded and manage. I am also active in the Drums Alive program and the Rejoicing Spirits Ministry. I believe we need to focus on our child’s abilities and live a life that is best for them. My hope as a Regional Coordinator is that I can help your family with a mentor so they can help you with those challenges and good times that we all face as parents.
