What We Need - Mandelyn Chelsea Cook-Jones

April 17, 2020

My name is Mandelyn Chelsea Cook-Jones and I am the mother of a ten year old child named Reagan, who is on the Autism spectrum. I am originally from Houston, Texas but being a sixteen year Active Duty Airforce member I have been stationed at Dover AFB, Delaware for the past four years. The COVID-19 emergency has stopped all in school sessions, ABA services, Speech, and Occupational therapy and additionally rescheduling crucial in person doctors appointments for my son.

I am worried about how much regression he will develop with the loss of services as some has already developed. Things we have worked years upon years to help him with that are slowly starting to appear again; which I can only guess will get worse as time goes on.
