Please help support Team Rockstar's two most important members; Lina (10) and Devin (5). They both have Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and they both also enjoy loud music and singing. Our household is a bit unusual. Instead of alarm clocks we wake up by turning on hard rock and rocking out together. Our house is never quiet or boring and that's just how we like it. For most children loving loud music would not be unusual or a major accomplishment but for Devin and Lina it is both. They both suffer from extreme auditory sensitivity, a common symptom of ASD. For years they required ear protection to enter a noisy environment and couldn't share in our love for music. It was hard for us to watch them suffer with painful reactions to noise among a myriad of other challenging symptoms. With WAAA's support we were able to access evidence based intervention and to advocate for appropriate school services. This has helped them to be less sensory sensitive, be more social and has the added benefit of allowing our family to rock out together. Each year brings with it more unique insurance and school challenges that we are confident in handling with WAAA's support. You can help WAAA help families like ours by donating to our team. Thank you for your support and rock on!
