BENEFITING: Nashoba Learning Group Inc
EVENT DATE: Mar 20, 2016
Please help support our Team Aidan's Allies on March 20th at NLG's 4th Annual Leprechaun 5k Shuffle and Fun Run.
This is our first year running to support Aidan's amazing school Nashoba Learning Group. NLG provides a different life trajectory for individuals with autism through outstanding, individualized education, and intervention services.
Before NLG Aidan was not afforded the same educational benefits as his non-disabled peers. We struggled for years to provide Aidan with a robust educational setting to meet his unique developmental and learning needs. During this time we encountered many who held very low expectations of our son due to his diagnostic profile. This soft bigotry was based off of Aidan's inability to communicate in the same way typical children do. Jeff and I believe not being able to say something is not the same as having nothing to say! We feel blessed to have found a school which shares this same mindset and places high expectations on who our son can become.
Please help us support Nashoba Learning Group's amazing work. It makes all the difference for children and families dealing with autism.

Thanks for your generous support and helping our son and many other students reach their fullest potential.
Kristie, Jeff and Aidan
