Ryan’s World

Ryan’s World is a non-profit organization in honor of Ryan Blake.  Ryan is an amazing 19 year old who lives in Houston.  Due to his special needs that include autism, obsessive-compulsive disorder, anxiety and Tourette’s syndrome, he has difficulty making friends.  He focuses on television, video games and dogs to the exclusion of forming any friendships.

There are wonderful organizations that are all inclusive and pair typically developing teenagers with kids like Ryan.  These organizations have programming that allows Ryan and others like him to participate just like his peers.  He is wanted and accepted for all activities that allow him to be himself without judgment of his special needs.

Proceeds raised from Ryan’s World are donated to various non-profit organizations to aid them in their efforts to provide these programs.  Programs are held year round and include holiday celebrations, family dinners, carnivals and bowling.  Friendships are formed because the volunteers understand the needs of each child.  Ryan’s World is proud to assist these organizations and rather than looking at these children as those with special needs, children are seen as just being “special”.

Ryan is the very special son of Judy Blake.  In addition to helping existing organizations, Judy’s mission is to raise awareness about those with hidden disabilities.  Her book, Judy’s World, chronicles her life and that of her boys as she raises them with special needs the world cannot see.  Speaking to audiences of all ages, she opens them up to a world they did not realize even existed.  Increasing tolerance and compassion for those who might be different, this is her goal.
