Why I Walk for Autism Speaks
For the first time I will be particiapting in this Walk as both a staff member and a mom! In January 2021, I took on the Director of Field Development role for the upper midwest at Autism Speaks, and I couldn't be more excited. Team Lego my Logo will continue, as this cause is incredibly important to our family.
I am a proud spectrum mom! In 2013 my oldest son was diagnosed with Autism. Logan is 1 in 54 kids. Logan is a child with Autism, but Autism does NOT define my child. He's remarkably smart, kind, funny, incredibly sweet, silly and spirited. Logan has Aspergers. He was diagnosed at the age of 3 and it changed our world. The last 7 years have been full of therapies, IEP meetings, social skills groups, worry, stress and fear. They've also been filled with pride, accomplishment, growth, success, love, happiness and endless laughter. To say that Logan has come far in the last 7 years is an understatement. He's had an incredible team of therapists, teachers and family supporting him, from the start, and he's accomplished so much! He's learned to be more flexible, his social skills have grown incredibly and he's learned how to regulate his reactions and temperament when he's feeling overwhelmed. He has made me a stronger and more patient mom than I ever thought possible. I'm a proud spectrum mama! This fall we will gather with our family and Walk for autism awareness. We will "Light it up Blue" and hope you will support us by donating towards our goal. Please take a few minutes to learn a little bit more about Aspergers and Logan's journey! https://www.autismspeaks.org/what-autism/asperger-syndrome
