Educating the community about Autism and supporting families with an autistic child

September 22, 2014


Jacqueline Williams-Hines, Autism Awareness Advocate and Author of the No Small Victories Children's Book Series joins eHealth Radio and the Austism Information Channel. Jacqueline's organization is focused on educating the community about Autism and supporting families with an autistic child on the Autism spectrum.


Listen to interview with host Eric Michaels & guest Jacqueline Williams-Hines discuss the following:

  • What is No Small Victories?
  • What inspired you to Start No Small Victories?
  • What are the themes of the books in your series?
  • What are the future goals of NSV?
  • What are some early sign of Autism, listeners can look out for?


Duration: 11:50


Born in Monroe, Louisiana in 1965, Jacqueline moved to Springfield, MA with her family in 1970 and has since been a Springfield resident.


A graduate of the former Classical High School and  grad student of American International College, Jacqueline subsequently left college to marry and start a family with her high school sweetheart. Though employed in several positions in her youth, it was the birth of her youngest son and his later diagnosis of autism that brought Jacqueline back to her first passion as a means of catharsis and coping mechanism…writing.


Though the dream of publishing her work had never truly been forgotten, it was this new found drive to help educate her son, Joshua’s, peers about autism as a way of bridging the communication gap that motivated her to self publish her first book in 2006.


Since then, No Small Victories has grown to become an organization active in increasing Autism Awareness as well as annually hosting an Autism awareness fair and boasting 4 books and counting.
