Local Walk Ambassador: Micah

Micah

 

 

Micah is 9 years old and the youngest of 3 children. Micah was diagnosed when he was 3. He was nonverbal at the time. He is considered high functioning now, is fully verbal and does well at school. Micah has many interests including his love for trains, drawing very detailed pictures, playing video games and making movies on his iPad with his sisters and friends. He loves to have play dates with his 2 closest friends and going to his grandparents on Thursdays after school which he has done since preschool. He also has quite the sense of humor.

We definitely have learned to celebrate his accomplishments no matter how large or small they may be. And to work hard through trials. He had worked very hard to get where he is today. This is our 4th walk in Saskatoon and we are committed to raising awareness and helping other families with children on the spectrum along the way.
