We’re delighted to welcome on board our new AIM Ambassador, Shaiden. We believe it is vital for young Black autistic people to have a voice and to be given a platform in the autistic community. Shaiden speaks out on the rights of autistic children.

Here’s what he had to say:

“Hi! My name is Shaiden. I’m a 9-year-old Autistic advocate from Ohio! I am now the Ambassador for AIM USA!

I felt alone on my journey so I decided to start my page, Break With Shaiden, in hopes to spread acceptance and bring children together!

We talk about tips on helping others who are autistic, about food and the joys of family!

If you are looking for a village come follow me! We welcome all!

Thank you!”
