Noah was diagnosed with autism at age 2 and started therapy shortly after at Shining Through Centre. He had poor social skills and experienced difficulty in communicating his needs even though he was verbal. After a few years of receiving early intensive behavioural therapy at Shining Through, he was able to integrate into kindergarten with the support of a therapist.
At age 14, Noah graduated from Shining through and started his high school journey which ended with an Honours diploma. Throughout the years Noah still faced challenges with social skills and self-regulation, for which he continues to receive some support.
