In the latest video from the Autism News NetWORK, we meet Jack Muirhead, using his assistive communication device, and his dad, Dave Muirhead. Dave Muirhead is the founder of the Beautiful Gate Center in Mt. Pleasant. The mission of the Beautiful Gate Center is to provide the highest level of care in a unique learning environment where children and youth with Developmental Disabilities and Autism are able to attain the skills and supports they need to enhance their long-term quality of life and that of their families and to help prepare the way for them to play, learn, live, and work as indispensable members of our Community.


The Autism News NetWORK trains participants in the use of journalism tools and techniques with the goal of building a television and internet news network focused on the complex world of Autism—treatment, research, education, and family life. Educational programming about Autism for families, clinicians, teachers, and researchers is written, produced, and directed by individuals with Autism.
