At only two and a half years old, Erik Weber, was diagnosed with autism. His mother, Sandy Weber, was told that he would forever remain a cognitive 18-month-year-old. But God works in mysterious ways. Although recently, this young man has become a lawyer he also currently holds many medals in the Special Olympics. No one would ever imagined he would make it this far but he did. His mother always knew her son was capable of greatness and was determined to help him every step of the way.

Erik Credits his parents along with a long time friend and professors to his success. Eric is now devoting his life to helping those with special needs to try and exceed their own expectations by practicing in special education law. Way to go Erik, you truly are an inspiration to people everywhere! 🙂
