Old Town/Orono Kiwanis Club invites founder Connor Archer to speak about his journey living with Autism
The Courageous Steps Project founder Connor Archer, was invited to give a presentation to the Old Town/Orono Kiwanis Club about his journey living with Autism on Tuesday July 28th, at the Black Bear Inn.
Archer talked through his journey for about 20 minutes, and then answered some thoughtful questions, that made him think a little. His parents, Mike and Jessica Archer, answered some of those questions, as he knew they could say it in a better way.
This is one of many engagements, that Archer has pursued in the past year, as part of the Courageous Steps Project. "It takes a community to raise a child", said Archer in one of his presentation slides during the presentation. Archer also mentions in a BDN article at the beginning of July the following: "It takes one person to make a difference. It takes several to make an impact".
The theme throughout his presentation, is that we are all a community, and that we need to embrace one another in our community. He kept mentioning that throughout the entire presentation.
Archer hopes to take tonight's experiences, and share them with other people, along with other organizations in the local area. It's another way, that we can change the prospective of early intervention, and how it is critical for young children with challenges, before three years of age.
He would like to thank the Old Town/Orono Kiwanis club for inviting him as a guest speaker tonight. It was a memorable experience, and he impacted a lot of people!
