Debbie Stone is the Founder and Creative Director of Pop Earth, a charity dedicated to providing holistic health and wellness options for those with Autism and related disorders. In 2005 when her eldest son Dylan was diagnosed with Autism, she was very dismayed to learn that there weren’t many holistic based programs or therapies available for those with Autism. Of those that were available, there were long waiting lists or the costs involved could very easily exceed the budgets of many families.
