Not The Past Or The Future, But The Present

Two days a week, the boys from Heritage High School in Loudoun County come to my store. On Tuesdays, they drop off their teachers' drycleaning, and they return on Thursdays to pick it up.

For each boy there is a teacher monitoring effective communication and safe public behavior. For each boy there is at least one diagnosis of a disorder on the autism spectrum.
