Finally, we are all devastated by the tragic passing of Feda Almaliti and her son, Mu. She was a true warrior, a fierce advocate, and a dedicated, determined mother. She was instrumental in changing the landscape of services for individuals with autism in California and beyond. Feda’s indomitable spirit will live on even as we mourn our incalculable loss.

If you didn’t have the honor of knowing Feda, listen in to this interview on NPR’s Morning Edition.

Feda was Vice President of the National Council on Severe Autism and the San Francisco Bay Autism Society.
