Crowne Plaza Knoxville
Popular author, speaker, and advocate
Emily Colson is a popular speaker and author of the award-winning book, Dancing with Max. Emily has appeared on Focus on the Family and Hallmark’s Home and Family. In her book, Dancing with Max, Emily and her father, Chuck Colson, each share their journey while raising Max, Emily’s son with autism. Emily Colson wrote a beautiful, hope-filled true story of a young man who is unable to communicate the same way many others do because of autism. Yet he is able to communicate better than most about the important things in life.
Through Emily Colson’s powerful message found in Dancing with Max, Emily shares how her family has overcome life’s obstacles through faith, love, and laughter. Colson’s Dancing with Max will make you laugh, make you cry, and inspire you to overcome your own challenges. Emily shares her experiences to reveal that a disability doesn’t have to define us rather it can reveal who we really are.
Emily enjoys speaking as an advocate for the inclusion of families impacted by disabilities. She serves as a beacon of hope inspiring others to look beyond the challenges to see the gifts. When she has breaks in her busy schedule, she and Max live on the New England Coast where they can be found dancing.
