Waylon’s Story

Where Waylon Started


Waylon began therapy at Cornerstone in June 2016 when he was only eight years old. He is now 13 years old and has grown so much! When Waylon began therapy at Cornerstone, he had only mastered 8 out of 170 Milestone skills on the VB-MAPP assessment. He struggled with manding, tacting, listener responding, motor imitation, and echoic skills. Waylon required prompting when completing self-help tasks such as using the bathroom, brushing teeth, washing hands, dressing, and mealtime skills. He engaged in frequent maladaptive behaviors that served as his main form of communication.

How Waylon Improved


Waylon graduated from Cornerstone Autism Center on February 17, 2022. He is now attending middle school. Since starting at Cornerstone, Waylon completed 99 out of 170 Milestones skills from the VB-MAPP. In addition to this, Waylon achieved many targets across the Assessment of Functional Living Skills (AFLS) to prepare him to transition into a school setting. He is now manding with complete sentences and can express his wants and needs. We are so proud of the progress Waylon has made since attending Cornerstone!
