Team N-Zilla Walk for Autism

5168?1356575442 Dear Family and FriendsWe are not sure if you know by now, chances are if you are on fb you have seen some of the ups and downs and humor …Our son Enso is on the Autism Spectrum.  In the past Ramon and I have been vague about it only our closes Friends and family have known and at times we have held back.  Simply because AU can be confusing to parents and we didn't want to have to explain or defend our son.   In the past 3 years we have found out things that help and not help Enso.  He has been in ECI, PPCD Pre-K and most recently Speech Therapy, Occupational Therapy and Physical Therapy.  
Like all our children, we are very proud of our Enso.  He has taught all of us so much.  Wednesday and Zen are great and I would like to say because of Enso they have more patients then the average pre teen/teen. And We all have a better sense of humor.
Enso has also educated us.  Before we had Enso Autism was foreign bad word.    Now being parents with a child on the spectrum we know a few things: 1) Autism isn’t a death sentence.  Early intervention has helped us so much. 2) 1 in 88 children and 1 in 54 boys are on the Autism Spectrum.  3).   Autism, well having similarities…it’s not a one size fits all disorder.    
This year we are Walking For Autism with Any Baby Can.  Any Baby can (anybabycansa.org)is non-profit organization that is a great resource for families and their children with special needs.  They have helped us and this year we want to give back.  Join Team N-Zilla and Walk with us or Donate.   Go to https://secure.getmeregistered.com/homepage.php?id=4642 to join or donate.  It’s a great cause and a great way to educate. With statistics like 1-88 chances are you know or love someone on the spectrum.

Thank you
Ramon and Adee
