EXCERPT FROM TJ'S MOM

EXCERPT FROM JERRI ANN DURBIN, 

MOTHER OF TJ DURBIN: 

"OUR NAMES ARE TIM AND JERRI ANN DURBIN 

ARE WE ARE THE PARENTS OF TJ DURBIN, A SEVEN YEAR OLD BOY WITH SEVERE AUTISM. 

TJ IS A WONDERFUL BOY FULL OF SMILES AND LAUGHTER, BUT HE CANNOT SPEAK AND HAS LITTLE COMMUNICATION, AND ALTHOUGH WE THINK HE UNDERSTANDS SOME OF WHAT WE SAY, WE HAVE BEEN UNABLE TO CONVINCE HIM OF THE DANGERS OF THE OUTSIDE WORLD. 

 

HE WILL RUN OFF ON HIS OWN WHENEVER GIVEN THE OPPORTUNITY, REGARDLESS OF THE DANGER. WHILE CELEBRATING HIS BIRTHDAY THIS PAST JULY IN A FENCED-IN OUTDOOR YARD, HE MANAGED TO ESCAPE SOMEHOW AND RAN INTO TRAFFIC AND WAS NEARLY HIT BY A CAR. 

 

WE ARE SEEKING THE SERVICE DOG TO HELP HERD TJ AWAY FROM DANGER, ESPECIALLY WHEN HE BOLTS, TO HELP HIM DOWN WHEN HE GETS UPSET AND HITS HIMSELF, AND TO ASSIST HIM IN HIS DAILY THERAPY AND LEARNING."
