Leon was diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder shortly before his 3rd birthday. Although this means that he may be presented with more challenges in life, we are thankful to have caught it early on and look forward to seeing him grow and overcome some of those challenges with the wide range of supportive services out there.
As a family, we have decided to take this diagnosis head-on and want to help raise awareness on what it means to live with autism.
We greatly appreciate all of the love and support that everyone has shown Leon. If you are able to donate to our fundraiser, we’d be forever thankful.
It takes a village to raise a child. It takes a child with autism to raise the consciousness of the village.– Coach Elaine Hall
Each year, the Autism Speaks Autism Response Team makes direct contact with tens of thousands of individuals looking for advice or guidance and more than one million people access their free nationwide autism services and resources. They continue to partner and support research to improve the lives of people with autism by investing in science that will allow more personalized treatments and therapies.
