Resolve to Overcome the Challenges of Autism

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 59 children are diagnosed with autism in the U.S

Cullen will always be autistic.  So we are doing all that is possible to not only prepare him for the world in which he lives, but also to prepare the path that lays ahead of him… in other words, we’re trying to change the world, starting with the lessons Cullen has taught us:

Show kindness.

Freely offer acceptance and understanding.

Help others every chance you get.

I hope CJ’s can help us do just that.

    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!
