2016 Waterloo Ambassador Kenner FeeLocal Walk Ambassador: Kenner Fee

Kenner was diagnosed with ASD at the age of three, after some key signs as an infant and toddler.  He had a speech delay, lack of social awareness, extreme meltdowns and anxiety around transitions. After years of various therapies and extra support, Kenner is a very happy 8 year old who loves going to school, learning and spending time with his friends.

Kenner talks about how he'll have autism his whole life, how he struggles with social interactions and dealing with new things.  But, he likes how having autism helps him remember dates and facts about his favourite singers.

Kenner lives in Kitchener with his parents, three siblings and service dog Ivy.  He is very excited and proud to be the walk ambassador for the 2016 Walk Now for Autism Speaks Waterloo!
