For The Love Of Bryson
Dear Family and Friends,
Once again our family is going to participate in Autism Speaks Canada Walk 2019 because Walk dollars make an impact on the autism community in which we are proud to say we are a part of.
This year Bryson was chosen to be the London 2019 Walk Ambassador. He was estatic when we told him that he would be leading the Walk team this year. What a proud accomplishment for our son. Bryson recognizes that his differences are his strengths and loves to share his triumphs with everyone.
We had such an amazing experience being a part of such a wonderful cause that impacts our everyday lives through the path of our Bryson. Team "For The Love Of Bryson" was able to raise over $1500.00 last year from the generous donations of our family and friends. Please help us reach our goal again this year by donating to this wonderful community that definity helps support families like ours.
We live everyday with the impact of Autism. What Julian and I can say is without the support that is provided through the community and workshops we wouldn't have been able to provide the tools to help Bryson become the best Bryson he is destined to be. He truly is an extraordinary boy who loves the universe which shows by the trail of kindness he leaves behind.
As the prevalence of autism continues to rise, it’s more important than ever to fund research and services so that people with autism have the opportunity to meet their full potential. In fact, Walk dollars have gone towards training Early Childhood educators, helping newly diagnosed families navigate the health care system, and young adults learning skills to help them find jobs – and that is just to name a few.
Here are some of the things that we’ve learnt about autism in the last 10 years…
- Autism can be reliably diagnosed by age 2.
- High-quality early intervention does more than develop skills.
- One third of children and adults with autism are nonverbal.
- Most adults with autism (84%) remain living with their parents.
- Over 80% of adults with autism are unemployed.
There’s still so much more to learn…and you can help.
By making a donation and supporting my efforts, you are making a difference to the autism community.
