When Jayden visited ECAD and met some of the Service Dogs-in-Training, Jayden and his family knew immediately that an
ECAD Service Dog will help him have less anxiety and keep him calm in public places as well as at home.
Meet ECAD Client: Jayden Rivera
Hello, my name is Jayden Rivera and I am here today to ask for your help.
Although I am a lot like you were at six years old – lover of pizza, singing silly songs, and cooking with my mom, I fight a battle every day due to my panic attacks.
You see, at just two years old, my family noticed I was very sensitive to certain things, and that I was already starting to have some panic attacks. This began my family’s journey of trying to find an easier way for me to live.
Today, you can be a part of this journey with your amazing support!
When the nice doctors diagnosed me with Autism, it was a really confusing time for everyone. I would get very anxious and nervous when I was around a lot of people or loud noises. Now, sometimes, I just start screaming and causing harm to myself because I do not know what else to do.
I am sure you can imagine how difficult life has been for my family and me. But today, I have hope!
I have hope that I will be able to live my life with more independence while pursuing my dreams of becoming a police officer when I am older. With your help, my dreams can come true!
With your help, I will no longer have to be afraid of thunderstorms and fire alarms.
With your help, I will be able to keep calm when I am in a crowded room.
With your help today, I will be one-step closer to receiving my ECAD Service Dog!
Thank you for gifts made in my honor to help me and other people like me. We greatly appreciate your kind and
