Lincoln, NE-- A mother of two raises her children.
"It's like the job of three to four people," said Liz Dunning.
Her kids Jonathan and Matthew have autism. At nine and seven years of age, it is a challenge to raise them on her own.
"I can't leave him unattended for more than a minute or two," said Dunning.
She came to Saturday's Autism Speaks Walk, where there were people just like her.
Senior Coordinator of the Walk, Erin Enyart said, "This is one day of the year that parents can take their kids and they know that all the other parents will understand."
The walk was filled with games, food, fun, but more importantly support for families who need help and guidance.
Governor Dave Heineman said, "We've got a legislative bill that I think is still in committee that we need to take a look at, but more and more people are supporting the funding for autism."
Enyart says the real support comes from the family and friends, "When your kids can't speak, you have to speak for them."
