Meet Leo. At the age of 3, we learned Leo had autism. By the age of 4, Leo began to find his words and now at the age of 7 can talk and hold conversations when he likes. Leo is a very joyful and playful kid. He enjoys playing video games and playing outside, espically if there is lots of sticks to play with. But most of all, Leo loves his dinosaurs. As a toddler Leo began to play with dinosaurs and the love for them just grows every year. Please feel free to come out and join us May 2nd 2020 either by running, walking, or just cheering us on.
