Ryan is an amazing twelve year old young man who has a passion for swimming, playing drums, waterfalls and going to car washes. He is in 7th Grade Band at his Middle School and loves it! He is the funniest boy we know and always knows what quote to say at the right time to make everyone laugh and smile. He loves his friends at school, his dog Sophie and being with his family, especially the boys.
He also has Fragile X Syndrome which causes him to face many challenges every day. Because of FXS, he has high anxiety, language delay, sensory issues and sometimes aggression. It has been almost 9 years since his diagnosis and looking back, we truly believe that the knowledge that we have received from the Fragile X World which includes the amazing therapists, psychiatrists, doctors, parents, and the National Fragile X Foundation, Ryan is growing into an eXtraordinary man.
He amazes us every day with his accomplishments and we are so proud of him, so very thankful that he is in our lives. He has showed us what is and isn’t important in life and to never give up on your dreams. “We can do anything that we want to do!”
