Cortland Greer is a vibrant eight-year-old who is on the Autism Spectrum. Cortland began to show regression a few months before his second birthday.
Diagnosed with Autism at the age of three; Cortland has never let having autism spectrum disorder, sensory processing disorder, ADHD or anxiety slow him down. Co-author of Cortland’s World, he is constantly rising to the challenges thrown his way, redefining the textbook answers and achieving milestones others deemed impossible. Creativity comes naturally for Cortland, and his love for music and art has not only grown, but has become an outlet for him when he’s having a challenging day. Whether it’s in front of or behind a camera, or in his sketchbook, Cortland lets his artistic outlets provide a calming energy for him.
Cortland's World is a place to celebrate the unique gifts that autism brings to our community. It is a safe space for autistic and neurodivergent people to come together, build relationships, and find acceptance. Through peer-to-peer support groups, virtual activities, and educational resources, Cortland's World provides an opportunity to celebrate our differences and create a more inclusive world. We are unapologetically embracing autism and encouraging everyone to join us in celebrating our unique gifts!
