Say Hello to Ava – Today’s Passenger

Ava2Say hello to Ava. Ava is on the Autism Spectrum and has a Sensory Processing Disorder. She has been a patient at Yakima’s Children’s Village where the program and services offered there have made a tremendous difference in the lives of her and her parents. Today, she is Mr. Dolsen’s passenger.

Ava’s mother tells her story:

“As parents, we knew there was something quirky about her but our friends and family didn’t see it. Our first visit to Behavioral Health Team (BAT) was simply an evaluation, and as I left the therapist assured me that Ava’s issues were not just in my mind! In a few months, we were regularly seen in behavioral therapy.”
