My name is Dekeda (also known as "Momma Pump"), and I am the mother of a smart, spunky, beautiful brown 16 year old girl named "Sneak". Sneak has non-vocal autism and sensory processing disorder (SPD) and has been the inspiration for my organization and mostly everything that I do!

 

As a wife, Momma / Bonus-Momma, autism activist, event planner and full-time employee, I dedicate my spare time to enriching the lives of families living with autism / special needs.

 

I serve my community in a variety of ways...

Hugs & High Fives Everyone

The project that I have spent the past 5 months participating in for The New York Times is LIVE. This is a raw, real account of what many of us are going through. I represent the special-needs momma. We represent the special-needs family. Please take a moment to check out.

Our Feature on The Kelly Clarkson Show

The WODIOS Mission is to share my personal  journey, by having you "Walk One Day In Our Shoes" through real / raw stories of trials and triumphs endured while raising a daughter with severe non-vocal autism.  The mission is to continue to promote acceptance for all people living with special needs . I also encourage an open dialogue regarding current news items regarding autism, inclusion/acceptance, and other special needs interests.
