Acceptance is an action.

Meet CJ

Cullen (“CJ”) is autistic.  Autism is a complex developmental disability that typically appears during the first three years of a person’s life and influences that individual’s ability to communicate and interact with others. Autism affects every individual differently and to varying degrees of severity, however it is characterized by repetitive behaviors, difficulties in social interaction, and difficulties in verbal and nonverbal communication. Current statistics estimate 1 in 44 children and 2.2% of adults are autistic in the US.

Cullen will always be autistic.  So as we help him prepare for the path ahead, we also try to prepare that path… in other words, we’re trying to change the world.  Let’s start with the lessons Cullen has taught us:

Show kindness.

Freely offer acceptance and understanding.

Help others every chance you get.

    CJ is amazing! The difference in him since his diagnosis and starting school is incredible. If only that would have come sooner and he hadn’t had to struggle as much as he did for that amount of time. Hopefully CJ’s Resolution Challenge can make a difference for other children and their families, helping to bring help to them sooner!
