In 2007, April 2nd was designated as World Autism Awareness Day by the United Nations General Assembly. Since its inception, autism awareness and acceptance have increased, and a better understanding of neurodiversity has ensued. This positive movement is captured in Autism Canada’s tagline: “See The Spectrum Differently”.

What’s good about an Autism diagnosis? An Autism diagnosis is important to get external support for you or your child, but it also helps alleviate some of the frustration that a young person and their family may be facing before they understand the many faces of Autism. Every journey is unique, listen to Alyssa’s story and the positive encouragement she can offer.

We were delighted to present the Lynn McMillan Resiliency Bursary to Alyssa Myers at our 20th Anniversary Annual General Meeting held on September 20th, 2017 at Victoria Hall in Cobourg.

The Lynn McMillan Resiliency Bursary is presented annually to a Rebound client or volunteer who has shown remarkable resiliency and is attending a post-secondary institution or registered in an apprenticeship program. 

Alyssa exemplifies the spirit of the award, having overcome bullying, depression, anxiety, and a diagnosis of Asperger’s.   Alyssa has turned her past adversity into developing her future career goals. Alyssa is planning on a career in Nursing with a focus on Mental Health, and aspires to giving back to her community by creating an inpatient Mental Health Clinic for youth like herself.  For Alyssa, accepting her diagnosis and learning to love herself has helped her to be the strong, empathetic and caring person she is today.

“This Bursary will help me complete my goal and hopefully help many others” she stated. Alyssa is looking forward to terrific year at school and a bright future.

Alyssa Myers is seen here accepting “The Lynn McMillan Resiliency Bursary” from Rebound Child & Youth Services volunteer Lynn McMillan.
