The first time Cory Mandel heard of autism, his learning support teacher had pulled him out of the classroom to speak with him alone.
“She basically told me that it’s like an umbrella,” Mandel said. “I was so stressed, and so upset.” Cory channeled that frustration and his personal experiences into school – and most importantly, into helping others.
