Hacking Autism Hack-A-Thon

The City of Richardson is partnering with Hacking Autism to host a one-day Hack-a-Thon brainstorming workshop on Sept 9 from 9am-4pm and we need your help! This is the kickoff activity of Richardson's inaugural Inclusion is Magical event, featuring a three-day showcase of art and performances of the autistic community https://www.cor.net/Home/Components/News/News/5822/73.

A trained team will lead participants through a brainstorming ‘Hack-a-Thon’ to discuss employment challenges facing the autistic community and come up with initiatives that can be acted upon by the Richardson community. National data shows the majority of people with autism are underemployed or unemployed. There is a whole community of untapped talent and significant contributions that we are missing out on. This is why the City of Richardson is leading the charge to create ideas and take action on them – all in a single day hack-a-thon. The event will be led by Hacking Autism founder and former Hewlett Packard Chief Technology Officer Phil McKinney. Hacking Autism is a nonprofit with a mission to fund, create and support opportunities that improve the personal and professional lives of people on the autism spectrum.

Ashley misses all of y'all so much! She was just getting settled into her new school with all new teachers and friends when Corona took over. Stay safe and healthy and we'll see you in August (God willing). Thank you for all you do for my girl and all of your students! Our family appreciates you!
Sarah and I want to say a very BIG THANK YOU to all her teachers for being THE BEST!!!! She misses you all!!
Since I missed sending you all a song yesterday, here's a short video of Sarah dancing at the State Fair last year. Her guitar teacher was about to perform, and she was really gettin' it with the warm up band!!
During this week of Teacher Appreciation the Cox family wants to give a shout out to the all the Life Coaches at Solomon Center. Garrison is missing seeing you in person but we appreciate so much everything you all have been doing to engage our kids...not only throughout the year, but especially during this challenging time. You all stay healthy and enjoy your weekend!
