Empowering autism with compassion and understanding.
It all began when Mohammed A Khan, a Founding Board Member of GRS Corp, received the news that his 3-year-old son had been diagnosed with Asperger syndrome, now encompassed within the Autism Spectrum Disorder. Like many parents, he and his family embarked on a path of hope, believing that time might unveil new opportunities for their child. Within their circle of friends, one voice emerged as a beacon of hope in the midst of uncertainty.
Asad Butt, another Founding Member, provided a fresh perspective. He reassured Mohammed that every child is unique and that time could bring unexpected growth and progress. However, Mohammed couldn’t ignore the striking similarities between his son’s needs and those of Asad’s own son, Azlan. With profound insight and a desire to make a positive impact, Mohammed gently shared his concerns about Azlan, suspecting that he might also be on the autism spectrum.
What followed was a transformative journey of self-discovery and professional assessments. It took almost a year for Asad and his family to embrace the fact that their cherished 3-year-old, Azlan (than 4), had Autism. As Mohammed and Asad delved into research, exploring the diverse needs and available resources, he became a guiding light for the community, inspiring them to embark on a path of support and understanding for their child.
Their experiences illuminated the path forward. The knowledge, empathy, and resilience they acquired became a source of hope for many others. They recognized that their shared journey could be a wellspring of strength for families navigating the complexities of autism. The idea to extend a hand of support to families facing similar challenges grew into a powerful vision.
After years of supporting families touched by autism, GRS Corp was officially established in 2021. This remarkable organization, born from personal experiences of many families and a commitment to create positive change, now stands as a symbol of compassion, empowerment, and progress. GRS Corp continues to shine a light on the path, offering invaluable resources, guidance, and unwavering support to individuals and families who are part of the autism community.
