United in Autism: Finding Strength inside the Spectrum
Written by Julie Hornok

A diagnosis of autism can rock a family’s world. The toll it takes on everyone involved can be one of isolation; a child who doesn’t respond to the world around them, a parent who gives dedication, patience and love often with no expressible love given back. It’s a messy equation with huge emotional and financial costs.

As a mother of a daughter with autism, Julie Hornok has experienced her fair share of these parenting challenges, and now brings together thirty inspiring and heartfelt stories from parents raising children from all places on the spectrum and from all corners of the world. These mothers and fathers have experienced some of the worst of what this disorder can do, but in seeking help, they found it…and more.

Now they pay it forward by sharing their accounts and giving back to the autism community. United in Autism: Finding Strength inside the Spectrum offers understanding, comfort and hope as well as global allies and strength to those who feel alone.

Mini 3in1 Deluxe

The perfect gift for one-year-old’s, the Mini 3in1 Deluxe scooter grows with ages 1 through 5, is virtually indestructible, and is the highest-rated scooter of its kind. Micro offers the highest quality scooters in terms of design and construction, meaning you can rest assured that it will last from adventure to adventure, year to year, and child to child.

The Mini 3in1 Deluxe offers three distinct riding stages (hence 3 in1) made specifically to coincide with your child’s developmental milestones.

Stage 1: Sit and scoot with our ride-on seat and O-bar attachment. The seat adjusts as your little one grows, and the O-bar is ergonomically designed for tiny hands. Typically, this stage lasts from ages 1-2.

Stage 2: Around age 2, children express an interest in standing to scoot. Simply remove the ride-on seat for a stand-on scooter with short O-bar.

Stage 3: Swap out the O-bar for the included T-bar. This converts the 3in1 to our Mini Deluxe scooter which adjusts to your child’s preferred riding height through age 5, or up to 44 lbs.
