A Heartwarming Interview

Recently, Officer Morgan had the opportunity to meet with Ryan, a ten-year-old boy with Autism. His journey with finding his voice is truly incredible, and we were humbled and honored to be interviewed by him.

Officer Morgan writes of their time together:

“Yesterday, I had the incredible good fortune to meet Ryan. At one’s first impression, because he is non-verbal, one might make certain assumptions about his capabilities. I learned that Ryan has more to say than many people I know.

With the use of his letter board, Ryan and his mother Stephanie interviewed me for over an hour. When Ryan let me get a word in, , I asked him this question, “If there were just one thing I could teach officers about their interactions with autistic people, what would it be?” I jotted it down as he spelled it out and I’m attaching a picture as well as a picture of me and Ryan and Freckles, his autism assistance dog.

Ryan has a blog. If you are interested, here is the URL:

What a great kid. Stop by anytime Ryan.”


Thank you for the visit Ryan!
