Jaedyn is a shy, smart 11 year old that loves learning new things. He has never been to a hockey game and is excited to try something new. Jaedyn is on the autism spectrum and has had to overcome many obstacles including an additional diagnosis of ADHD. Jadyn’s mom, Megan, states, “Since being diagnosed, Dr. Jolene (Meis), Carmen and Lisa have stood by Jaedyn helping in any way that he has needed including medication monitoring.”
Autism is known as a “spectrum” disorder because there is wide variation in the type and severity of symptoms people experience. Most autistic children have difficulty with communication and interaction with other people, restricted interests, repetitive behaviors and symptoms that hurt the person’s ability to function properly in school, work, and other areas of life. They may also have trouble settling down, social awkwardness, impulsivity and the ability to focus only on things that interest them. Although researchers don’t understand the exact causes of autism, there seems to be a strong genetic component that can act together with influences from the environment to affect development in ways that lead to autism.
Please join us in celebrating Jaedyn, our October Hot Shot! The Sioux City Musketeers, in partnership with Floyd Valley Healthcare (FVH) began the Hot Shots program in 2018. This program was created with the goal of honoring FVH pediatric patients who have chronic health issues. We are excited to give children an opportunity to have a fun time with their family, cheer on the team and just enjoy being a kid for a night.
