Come Meet Drayden

Terrible, Thanks for Asking

Come Meet Drayden

Drayden is a solid, good human. He doesn’t lie. He tells it like it is. He is a Black boy with Autism Spectrum Disorder, and his mother Dana has been fighting to get him the diagnosis and services he deserves since he was just a few months old.

Dana and her children wrote a book about what it’s like to have a sibling who has autism. You can purchase “Come Meet Drayden” here.
