Welcome to My Personal Page
For those of you that personally know me, you know that ASD has always held a special place in my . I've had the pleasure of working with children on the spectrum from a very young age (maybe 14 yrs old), and throughout university - from 1 on 1 to group camps.
2020 has proven to be a year of uncertainty and trying times. I'm sure families who have been cooped up for months now are continuing to struggle with the weather getting hotter & their children camps being canceled.
If you don't already know, routine is very important for the majority on the spectrum. I can't help but feel for those who may not understand why they're stuck inside, and why their summer routines are not executed as usual.
While I may not be struggling as much I'm certain many are, I am able to give back to something that has taught me so much over the years. I've decided to partake in a 5K Virtual Run to raise money for Autism Speaks. Virtual meaning anyone can join from anywhere and run with a partner, or singular.
The Autism Speaks organization promotes solutions for the needs of people with ASD and their families - including those in urgent need of resources right now.
I've naturally waited 2 days before the 5K to register, and have a set goal of $1000 - so about 38hrs from now to raise that.
I would greatly appreciate it if anyone could donate or join and spread awareness :)
