This Months Super Star Is….

Xander Wayne!! 

 

 Xander Canyon Wayne. This little X man has Autism and last year was diagnosed with fragile-X syndrome. He works super hard to overcome his anxiety in social settings and has the sweetest most loving little heart. We’ve watched how he has impacted adults and children alike in our community who have gained knowledge , and demonstrates empathy and compassion through being touched by X-man and his and his Mom’s testimony. He has dealt with many extreme changes this past year, from a new school, peers and teachers, to them changing up his classroom mid year, to many changes in his personal surroundings, all while doing OT,PT and speech weekly and ABA four days a week. It hasn’t been easy for Xander but he truly is one of the most resilient human beings 

Let’s give it up for Xander!!
