Several years ago, Author Steven Manchester met a little boy who has autism--Chase Howard. Although he immediately became friends, he didn't realize then that his life would never be the same. Chase has taught him (and countless others) the true meanings of empathy, perseverance, friendship and unconditional love. Realizing his friend Chase is a true inspiration to all who meet him, last summer ( Steven's family & Chase's family ) decided that more people should meet him and learn about autism through the invaluable lessons Chase and his sisters can teach. A childrens book was the perfect campaign, so together with Chase & Stephanie Grossi illustrating, and based on true family events, Perfect Chase: One Reflection of Autism came to print.
