Hi my name is Aiden Ashworth. I like video games and playing with my friends. I play on a special needs hockey team it’s called the Cambridge Ice Hounds.  I play goalie on it and out, but goalie is my favourite.

I was diagnosed with Autism when I was 4. I have a difficult time explaining Autism sometimes. I have a difficult time doing other stuff like playing when others don’t follow the rules, also in loud environments sometimes it makes it hard for me to comprehend what is happening. My Autism also makes it hard to understand consequences of things I do.

I am excited to be walk Ambassador for Autism Speaks Waterloo because I want to spread awareness about autism so that people understand that having autism is not a bad thing and it’s okay to be different. This year will be my eighth Autism Speaks Canada Walk but my first as ambassador.
