Today, over 70 million children and adults are affected by autism. Each of them, have unique strengths, challenges and potential. Autism Speaks will be there for them. You and I can be too.
In my home we have Ricardo (Ricky is what we call him) an autistic toddler who has already taught me more than what I can ever teach him. Receiving a diagnosis of autism for Ricky was a hard one to accept because I did not understand and perhaps still working on it as it’s a daily learning experience for both Ricky and I; but it has since shown me that Ricky needs my voice and understanding and that we are not alone… Ricky is non-verbal and yet with his side hugs and squeeze to my fingers tells me more than what words can say… I chose the Team name because I believe I am Ricky’s voice, today and for as long as I need to be. On behalf of Ricky I hope and pray that you too can join in and help me be his voice!!! As most of you are already a huge part of his life, teaming up with US will make a huge difference ❤
