Wednesday's Child: 11-year-old Allen is ready for a loving permanent home

LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — All children deserve a loving permanent home. No one more so than 11-year-old Allen. Sport-Social is a place that focuses on activities that bring out the best of children with special needs. Allen was on board for all of it. At 11, Allen is really starting to get stronger and come into his own. You can see his resolve in trying out the scooter but if you think his determination makes him too serious, bubbles are the one sure-fire attention-getter guaranteed to bring big smiles and laughs from Allen. It's all part of the reason his caregivers say "with an open mind there's no limit to what Allen can do." Allen is ready for that loving permanent home with parents who realize the incredible potential this young man has. Allen is available for adoption. You can find out more about how to do that by calling our Wednesday's Child partners: Raise the Future, at: 702-436-6335.

At 11, Allen is really starting to get stronger and come into his own.

Everyone meet this cool kid Jackson 😎! The amazing team at Squeeze In invited Jack to share his latest recipe called - “Nothing Rhymes With Orange Waffle” AND also be their guest chef!

Jackson got to introduce himself to every table and offer samples to over a hundred guests, many of whom ordered his delicious waffles for breakfast and many who thrilled him by offering him tips!

Jacksons famous waffles will be served at the Eastern “Squeeze In” location through the end of the month! Stop by and support a business that supports our autism community and tell them you want a “Nothing Rhymes With Orange Waffle! 👏☕️🧇🥓🍳

When he outgrew cute
The looks changed from compassion to concerned
Towards him
And towards those who supported him.
And sometimes disgust
Overshadowed concern
As he stubbornly clung to his ways.

When he outgrew cute
The calls increased
Calls desperate for help
Desperate for summer options for a 16 year old in diapers
Desperate for respite
Desperate for adaptive equipment
Desperate for anything that would assist a non verbal teenager
Or anyone
And the voices were silent
Or they whispered –
Sorry.
Sorry.
Sorry.

When he outgrew cute
His movements were no longer celebrated
But instead feared
Violent head banging
Aggressive pulling
Dangerous optimism
With the strength of a man
And not that of a child.

When he outgrew cute
The damage began
Damage to walls
Damage to others
And damage to himself
And this damage
Wreaked havoc on more than just objects
It wreaked havoc on psyches as well.

When he outgrew cute
The walls caved in
And the house became a tomb
And the isolation suffocated those within
As they desperately yearned to belong
To something
Somewhere.

When he outgrew cute
Milestones were no longer encouraged
And his future grew dim
And symptoms of PTSD set in
For those who loved him & had been
Rattled by his screams for years.

When he outgrew cute
Mood altering drugs were doled out like candy
One option after another
For him
And also
suggested for his caregivers.
Drugs to dull the pain
Drugs to pacify
Drugs to silence the demons

When he outgrew cute
She outgrew herself
As every ounce of strength was poured into him
And she got lost in the daily grind
Lost in the sleepless nights
And invisible behind the never ending tasks

When he outgrew cute
She outgrew silence
And she raised her voice
To join the cacophony for change
And her battle cry rose –
A better tomorrow!
For him
And for those who loved him.
Because when he outgrew cute
He outgrew society
And that’s simply not an option.
For anyone.
Anymore.

When he outgrew cute
She found the strength to move forward
To move towards advocacy
And move towards hope.
She found the strength
To keep going
And keep growing
And she found the strength
To just keep livin.

Hello Everyone. I'm the father of an Autistic adult son that is 19 years old. I'm seeking a therapist for him as well as someone that can help him with daily routine (including remote learning since he is still in high school). We are new to Nevada, so ANY help would be appreciated. Thanks.

The online auction was SO MUCH FUN! So glad to participate in virtual fundraising for FEAT of Southern Nevada.
How many inmates are estimated to be on the spectrum? "The U.S. government increased its autism estimate to 1 in 68 children being on the Autism Spectrum" on March 27, 2014. https://www.cbc.ca/news/health/autism-estimate-increases-to-1-in-68-children-in-u-s-1.2589106 How many children does that amount to? Take that sum and subtract from the total number of foster kids or parents fighting in the courtrooms of Nevada. How much does the system profit by having foster children and family courts issues? Who might be a good person or department to ask? Thank you very very much. So appreciate the knowledgeable in our community.
Has anyone tried the Brain-Power Google glasses? Looking for feedback if this will be a good classroom tool! Thank you!
Does anyone have any recommendations for a professional in the Las Vegas valley who can help with sleep issues? My 8 year old autistic daughter has never been able to get to sleep on her own and seldom sleeps through the night. I was recently diagnosed with hypertension and poor sleep seems to be a big part of the problem. This is, in fact, becoming a life and death issue for us. Our ABA therapists have recommended Dr. Gaspar, but we've been trying for years to get in to see him with no luck. Is there anyone who can help us?
