Steven was born in Newport Beach, CA. His parents first noticed he was not speaking like other 2 year olds. They took him to doctors and specialists and had various tests done but the doctors could not come up with a diagnosis. Steven went through physical, speech and vision therapy during those early years. One doctor even said that “he will never be able to ride a bike”.[button url=”http://atanc.org/hero-of-the-month-steven-smith/” size=”small” style=”limegreen” ]Read More[/button]
