“Hudson has gone through more in six short years than most of us will in a lifetime.   As his parents, we have accepted a level of uncertainty regarding Hudson’s future and where life will take him.   One thing, however, that we are sure of is that it will be brighter with a four-legged friend by his side.”  Christina and Michael Boyles


Meet ECAD Client Hudson Boyles

Hi, my name is Hudson Boyles.  I am six years old and I live with my parents in Santa Clarita, California.  My favorite things are playing hide and seek, riding my scooter or bike, and basically anything outside.  When I am not outside, I like playing with dinosaurs, watching movies on my iPad, coloring, cutting and gluing art projects, and spending time with my family.  

 

I have Autism and multiple other chronic medical conditions that require frequent trips to my doctors, and occasionally to the hospital.  Having my ECAD Service Dog accompany me would make these unpleasant activities so much less stressful! 


My situation causes me to have a difficult time “reading” people and understanding how to interact with them.  My disorder primarily affects me when I have to leave home, transition between different activities, and in social situations.  My parents are my best friends and my biggest fans, so I have a really hard time when they have to leave me to go to work or somewhere else that I am unable to go.  Sometimes I become overwhelmed and have meltdowns or try to bolt away.  Because I do not have an obvious, visible disability, people do not typically correlate these behaviors with being a coping mechanism for my anxiety.  

 

My parents and I know that with an ECAD Service Dog by my side, my dog will be trained to recognize my cues and signs, and will help to keep me calm and offer reassurance when I am anxious or scared.  My dog will even provide physical anchoring if I try to make a quick escape.  Most importantly, my dog will give me unconditional love and companionship.

 

Your donation to ECAD to help me and other autistic kids like me is sincerely appreciated by my parents and me.
