For the End of Autism Awareness Month

by Eric Pudalov, Community Events Coordinator

We were excited to learn that Color Me House, a designer of products that help stimulate imagination and creativity in children, mentioned us in their blog, at April is Autism Awareness Month.

We at GCSS asked Color Me House to participate in the 2010 Walk Now for Autism Speaks event, which takes place Sunday, May 23 at Atlantic Station in Atlanta (look for a separate entry about this event next month).

So thanks again for the mention, Color Me House! Anyone dedicated to the cause of helping people with disabilities is a friend of ours.

To read more about this great organization, drop by their WordPress blog at thinking inside & outside the box. If you like what you see, be sure to visit their Facebook page as well, at FB: Color Me House, and their homepage, Color Me House & Color Me Rocket.

About gcsscommunity

My name is Eric Pudalov, and I work as Community Events Coordinator with Georgia Community Support and Solutions, whose mission is to provide creative, life-enriching solutions to people with developmental disabilities and their families. I became interested in this field, however, due to having a disability myself; namely, I had brain surgery in 1996 at age 14, to remove a benign tumor. Following this, I had many difficulties with short-term memory, loss of strength, confusion, and emotional control. Fortunately, at present, I've recovered much of what I'd lost. Despite some setbacks, I graduated high school with honors, and received an academic scholarship to Adelphi Univ., where I earned a BA in Communications. Since then, I've held a number of different jobs and internships, among them a TA position at Sylvan Learning Center, and work as a "Service Leader" with Hands on Atlanta. Since living in GA, I've also been involved with two programs (including GCSS) that serve people with disabilities. My experience has included sharing apartments with adults with autism and other disorders. Though my so-called "limitations" may differ from those of others in the program, these experiences have helped me to realize that people, overall, are capable of much more than we may at first perceive.
