12 Years and Waiting for Autism Waiver

FORT WAYNE, Ind. -- Matthew Gibson is a 22-year-old with Severe Autism. He also has obsessive compulsive behavior and has shown signs of Tourette Syndrome. Everything seemed normal with him until he was suddenly diagnosed at two years old. Since then he's not been able to speak and needs 24-hour care.
"The older he gets the more frustrated he is that he can't talk, he's smarter than people realize, he's just trapped in his own body",said Matthew's Mother, Annie Gibson.
