Meet Hector Mellen

Here is a great story about a boy on the autism spectrum who is getting ready to start college for pre-med.  Hector Mellen didn't used to have the social skills necessary to perform basic communication functions.  The high school senior is from Riverdale California and has expressed a strong desire to help others on the autism spectrum. Just yesterday, Hector spoke to a large group of fellow high school students about raising autism awareness.  He is certainly another example of the hidden potential that can often be found within those on the autism spectrum.
