Mountain Notter relocated to Maryland several years ago when her husband Ronnie was deployed to Afghanistan. Both of their children have autism, and they have no family living in state to help out.
Eleven-year-old Jasmine has lots of potential, if she can get the needed intervention, while nine-year-old Noah is profoundly autistic. Sweet-faced and with an impish cowlick, he enjoys jumping and taking walks outdoors with his mother. But on a bad day, he punches holes in the walls with his head, and eats drywall. He barely sleeps, needing round-the-clock care and supervision.
Noah's sister Jasmine is still waiting on the list for intervention that could help her.
