Journey with Julian

Journey with Julian

An award-winning broadcast journalist shares his poignant story about his family’s journey with autism.

About one child out of 110 will be diagnosed with autism. When Dwayne Ballen’s son Julian was diagnosed at age four, Ballen started a blog to record his thoughts and share his family’s experiences.

Julian has taught his parents much about life and the real meaning of success. He has led them to realize that a smile and a warm hug are two of the most rewarding gifts a parent can ever receive. The Ballens’ journey is inspirational and enlightening. Journey with Julian will strike a chord with parents who are just receiving the diagnosis of autism for their child, as well as those further down the path.

Journey with Julian shows that in the end, it’s family and fierce determination that help us all to get the most out of life.
