Autism Speaks Walk
Hello! I just wanted to quick share some info here. For those who don't know, we have a 6 year old son, Lucas, with Autism. He is the light of my life :) He is the reason I choose to work with kids with special needs. He is beautiful, loving & hilarious. He is our youngest child.
Autism is a tricky thing. A lot of people don't understand it, most don't know how truly different it can be from child to child. There are many degrees of Autism Spectrum Disorder or ASD from very mild to extremely severe.
Lucas and I will be participating in the Walk for Autism Speaks at the Mall of America at the end of September. We would appreciate donations of any amount, which you can make online right HERE or by clicking the Autism Speaks Walk pic to the right/top, both will take you directly to our donation page where your tax-deductible donation will go straight to Autism Speaks!
If you are unable to donate, please visit Autism Speaks anyway and just learn something new so you can better understand people with ASD. There is tons of information for anyone on their site as well as info on how their donations are used.
Thanks so much!
