Walking for Austism - Greyson Style
Thank you for giving us your support.
As you know, Rachel and I became parents about 4 years ago on April 27th. I cried a famous amount in the hospital that day. Who would have known that our little bundle of joy would be diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder 3 short years later; while suspician of the disorder was being suggested at nearly 2 years of age.
This suspician thrust Rachel and I on a crash course to become experts in a Neurological disorder that is so aptly named as a SPECTRUM. Anyway, onward we have pressed, and Greyson, Rachel, and I have accomplished so much in such a short period of time.
Through all our research, we learned about Applied Behavioral Analysis or otherwise knows as ABA Therapy. This therapy, particularly if introduced early, is scientifically proven to help Austic Children assimilate in a "Neural Typical" world. Not only have we had Greyson getting private therapy; we have also worked with our local public school to impliment ABA programs within the classroom. In short, not only are we making a difference in Greyson's life but we are postively affecting those that surround us which is our famalies life calling.
The difficulty with Autistic children is not that they are challenged mentally, its quite the contrary; they are highly intelligent but DO NOT understand how to interact with a world that continues to just happen in front of them. In a day where "safe spaces", "equality", and "expressing individuality" is paraded across news stations; just take a step back and think: what if I was unable to get what I wanted to eat because I am unable to communicate. This is what we deal with regarding Greyson on a daily basis. We are so blessed to be parents to our little Greyson and we are so grateful for our circumstances because they make us better as people. We are so excited to see the gifts that Greyson has and how he will make his mark on a world that is "begging for a blessing."
With all the above being said, we would like to solicit your financial support for Greyson, the NC Autism Socieity, and his ABA Therapy provider Behavioral Consluting for Autism, LLC. Reserach is what helps and money fuels that research.
Thank you for your considerate gift!
