Amber Fernbach is a dedicated mom on a mission. As a mother of two special needs children, her son’s Autism was the catalyst for her mission to educate the community about the characteristics of Autism.

In her book Jenna’s Brother Has Autism, Amber highlights the need for understanding in sibling peer groups to help educate those who don’t have experience or awareness of what Autism really means.
