THE STORY:

Brittany DeSimone wrote -

As most of you know, our son, Ryan, was diagnosed with autism four years ago. While it has been difficult, he has come a long way now that he is receiving the appropriate therapies and treatment. We are just thrilled with the progress he has made, but we also know that he has a long road ahead of him. The Autism Society of Berks County has been a source of support for our family. We have joined their Facebook page, which is a great way to connect with other families and share ideas. We also attend their family events. There are times when it is almost impossible to do simple things that other families do together and take for granted. Over the last few years, we were able to do things like go to a private theater rental at the movies, go to a Reading Phillies game, attend music therapy classes, along with many other events. Recently, we went to the Hands-on-House in Lancaster! Britt has even began volunteering; she monitors and returns phone calls on their phone lines every Tuesday. We will be forming a team to walk in honor of Ryan at their annual Autism Awareness Walk on Sunday, September 18th and would like to invite you to join us! There will be lunch, entertainment, a raffle, and prizes for those who raise the most money. Just let us know that you want to join our team, then start collecting pledges. You can register and turn the pledge money in the day of the walk or donate right here online. If you can’t join us on Sept. 18th, please consider making a donation; any amount that you can give would be greatly appreciated! With your help, the Autism Society of Berks will continue to provide information and support for individuals within the autism spectrum, their families, and professionals through community awareness, education, and research related to autism. Love, Britt, Sam, Ryan, and Gianna
