My younger son Matthew was diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) in October of 2016 at the age 21 months. He made great strides as a result of his early interventions and therapies. When Matthew turned 3, he transitioned into a full day substantially separate preschool program. He continues to progress on all levels. Most notable is his speech and language, peer interaction, eye contact and joint attention. This year will be our 3rd Autism Speaks Walk. We will walk as a family with our team knowing we are not alone in this lifelong journey with ASD. I invite you to walk with us, donate, or both towards this great cause.
I'm walking to raise funds for the mission of Autism Speaks – to fuel innovative research and make connections to critical lifelong supports and services for the autism community. Please support me by donating and help me meet my fundraising goal - and you, too, can join the team and make an impact for people living with autism!
