Hometown Hope Initiative Recipient For June - A Service Dog For PJ
  

Please join us for a fun family afternoon in support PJ and our quest to get him a service dog! 

Our six year old son PJ was diagnosed with autism at a very young age. He is non verbal, has PICA disorder and as he continues to grow, is prone to running off or toward water. Despite his challenges, he is a happy boy who is thriving at a special school for autism and uses an iPAD to communicate. 

Recently, we began researching service dogs trained specifically for autisitic children and were able to visit Ry-Con, an Organization in Raleigh NC, that breeds and trains service dog specifically for Autism. Well, PJ absolutely came to life at the sight of the service dog, seeking him out for interaction and truly connecting with him. Beyond much-needed companionship for PJ, these service dogs can also:

  • Prevent him from running and wandering into dangerous situations

  • Enhance his current therapies

  • Help with his sleep patterns

  • Ease his anxiety in new or difficult situations

  • Allow for some independence at home and when in public

  • Engagement and interactions with his peers

  • Keep him from ingesting dangerous non edibles

We hope you will join us for a fun family afternoon and help make this dream come true for PJ!
