Alison Tawil is an attorney who lives in East Rockaway with her husband and son. She has practiced medical malpractice and special education law and now works for a class action administration firm on Long Island. But Alison's favorite job is being mom to Brad and step-mom to Jacob and Sophia. On February 13, 2004, Alison's then 22 month old son was diagnosed with autism. This diagnosis set Alison on a path of reading, learning, fighting, understanding, and accepting. Alison, with the support of her husband and parents, has spent the last thirteen years researching, advocating, and traveling long distances to get her son the therapy, educational, and medical appointments that have led to her son's amazing development.

Aside from her family, Alison's greatest passion remains assisting families in navigating the special needs world. To this end, she consults with families to support their education, therapy, nutrition, and behavioral concerns for their children. Alison is a member of the Board of Directors of the Nassau Suffolk Chapter of the Autism Society of America (NSASA), a 501(c)(3) organization comprised of over 1900 families on Long Island affected by autism. Alison eats organic foods, drinks green juices, exercises, cooks, bakes, reads, and wishes there were more hours in each day.
