A Grandmother's Love Brings Awareness and Hope to Autism

Posted: Updated:

Penny Hunt has many titles. She's a wife, a mother, a grandmother, an author, a speaker, and an activist. But, with each of her jobs, her family is at the core. It was her granddaughter, Millie, who served as inspiration for her book "Little White Squirrel's Secret: A Special Place To Practice."

Now nineteen, Millie was diagnosed as severely autistic when she was a child. It was a diagnosis that rocked her entire family as they tried to find a way to care for the young girl who could be so difficult to control and was prone to outbursts. Penny shares her family's personal story with Brad Means and The Means Report viewers, and explains how they got through the ups and downs.
