YONKERS, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) – An unusual and wonderful development for one Yonkers mother has led to her to try and seek out other mothers who need the help she didn’t have.
When Betty Davidson’s twins were two-and-a-half, she noticed one of them wasn’t developing like the other.
“We got the very devastating diagnosis that he had autism,” she told WCBS 880 reporter Sean Adams.
He was severely affected.
“My son tested below the bottom percentile across every single domain,” she said. “Cognition, language, communication, play, social skills, leisure skills, adaptive skills, visual performance skills.”
What happened next was highly unusual.
