The E-Team is inspired by almost 15 year old Ethan Pacione who received an official Autism diagnosis at the age of 3, though the term was initially discussed at age 18 Months. Ethan is nonverbal, but understands a lot and uses a few signs. Unfortunately we have been unsuccessful in finding a method to completely communicate, which is frustrating for Ethan. Aside from an Autism diagnosis, Ethan also has epilepsy, anxiety disorder, rheumatoid arthritis and extreme sensory processing disorder. Ethan has no qualms with socializing though. He really enjoys eye contact, high fives, taking walks, riding his trike, swinging, jumping on a trampoline, watching SpongeBob and eating just about everything.
