Light It Up Blue for World Autism Awareness!

Beatriz Ball’s grandson, Bo, is the inspiration for partnering with Autism Speaks as he was diagnosed with autism just before his 3rd birthday.

How You Can Help

Meet Bo!

Beatriz’s grandson Bo is the youngest of her 13 grandchildren. He lives in New Orleans with his parents, Kristine and Jose Maruri....Beatriz's son and daughter in law. He is the youngest of 5 children, and he brings so much joy and wonder to his family!

Bo is now 6 and continues to thrive and learn!  He is currently attending a mainstream charter school but receives many accommodations for which we are grateful. Recently, his teacher told us that while she has been working with him on identifying the numbers 1-20, she learned that Bo can not only count to 100 but can also identify the numbers 1-100! 

That is one of the many tricky things that come with autism- unlocking what is in each child’s brain!  It takes very talented and dedicated people to do that and we are thankful for the many wonderful teachers and therapists who have helped Bo and is along the way.

Bo remains the joy of his family.  We revel in each and every challenge that he rises to and are the recipients of all of his hugs, kisses and love!

Please join Beatriz Ball New Orleans, Bo, and his family in our support of autism awareness.
