As most of you know I'm a proud Autism Mom. Here is a bit about Asher's story. Asher was a true gift from God. He was born on October 6, 2015. As he grew we learned that his needs were just a little bit different. He was just a little behind others and was not speaking as he should be. We had a wonderful pediatrician who was with us every step of the way. She recommended early on that he should be tested for Autism. Although hesitant We did agree and he went for testing. He was diagnosed with Autism. We had no idea what his needs would end up being. We started therapy and also allowed baby net into our home to help with his needed. He seen dentist and other specialist to address his speech needs. As he grew We added occupational therapy and involved our local school so that we could start at an early age getting him use to being around others. Today he is seven and we are still learning and growing. Having an autistic child you have to learn each other's language without words. You have to be able to read and understand what they are trying to communicate. This is why we walk for Autism. We want to help others grow awareness for AutismÃ¢Â¤
In addition to coming together in person to help create a world where all people with autism can reach their full potential, each Walk will retain the fun, remote-participation options introduced last year. Your safety is our priority — and no matter how you choose to participate, your support will be recognized and celebrated. Our community is stronger together, and we can't wait to celebrate one another and the amazing impact we are making together for people with autism and their families. Whether near or far, let's rally together on Walk day!
