Autimism: Autism Through a Photographer’s Lens


Strength. Courage. Believe. Conner.

Bonnie Coulbourne 1 Bonnie Coulbourne 2

I think that Autism is different to each person and family touched by it. When I hear the word Autism I think of four words…Strength, Courage, Believe, Conner. This picture is of my brother Conner at his niece’s recent cheer competition. To turn around and see him sitting there so relaxed and comfortable when the competition is so loud your soda vibrates—still amazes me. This represents his journey from not being able to sit through Sesame Street live at age 4 through now.

**Conquer for Conner and Geek Club Books have produced Autimism: Positive for a Change, in joint effort with The Autism Society in tribute to Autism Awareness Month from April 1 through April 30.
