BENEFITING: MARCUS AUTISM CENTER INC

EVENT DATE: Oct 18, 2015

Rachel Wallenstein

THE STORY:

“Daliya, would you like to play race cars with me?”

My 4-year-old brother, Amiel, asked me that question a few weeks ago. For somebody else with a younger brother, that would have meant nothing, they wouldn’t have thought about it.  How he had asked me, not the other way around. Most probably would have even said no.  And I’ll admit I didn’t feel like playing race cars with him. But the fact that he asked like that is why I said yes. I didn’t even realize how amazing it was for a few minutes. The thing is though, usually that wouldn’t be amazing for a 4-year-old. But it is, when that 4-year-old has Autism, like my brother does.   

Before Amiel was born, I didn’t know what Autism was. If Amiel didn’t have Autism,  maybe I still wouldn’t.  And during the 4 years that I have known what it is, I’ve learned so much about it.  Amiel goes to a special preschool which has kids with Autism as well as kids without.  He is starting his third year there and has been progressing incredibly.  They work on social skills there and also teach him exactly the words to ask questions and to invite people to play.  That’s why the way Amiel asked me to play race cars, and the words he used, was so amazing.  

The more I learn about Autism, the more curious I became about  it, and the more I’ve wanted to help. I have decided to raise money for the Marcus Autism Center, where they do research, diagnoses, and help kids with more severe Autism.  They help with things like eating, behavior, and social skills. I am hoping to raise $3,600 for this cause, which means so much to me, and donating would mean so much to these families.

Sincerely, 

Daliya
