Inspired by: Well let me tell you the story of Alec. Alec, who is two years younger than me, was diagnosed with autism when he was 8 months old. For the next 20 years I watched how a blissful walk would turn into complete agony at the mere sight of a trigger. His pain and lack of a childhood has been the motivation behind PAL.
