Board Member Jodi Kaplan
Friday, January 13th, 2012
My name is Jodi Kaplan and I have been involved with AHA for about 12 years.
I recently joined the Board of Directors and have co chaired the Rock N Bowl fundraising event for the past two years. I am very proud to finally have the time to give back to AHA by fundraising, volunteering with programs and sharing my knowledge and experiences with others.
My son was diagnosed with a receptive and expressive language processing disorder 18 years ago. We could not understand why, at 1 ½ years of age, he did not turn when we called him, why certain sounds bothered him and why he was always cranky. Autism was mentioned a few times, but our son was not diagnosed with autism at that time. By first grade our son had been diagnosed with Pervasive Developmental Disability – Not Otherwise Specified (PDD-NOS) and now with high functioning autism.
