If you know someone with an autism spectrum disorder, you know that they often need specialized activities in order to learn successfully. With $1000 we can buy new computer programs for an entire computer lab. With $5000 we can reserve a room solely for the purpose of autism education (at the moment they are simply classified as special needs and are placed in the same class as other special needs children.) With $10,000 we can hire an additional part time teacher. As the monetary values go up, we can do more and more for these children. If we were lucky enough to get above $50,000 we could expand the program to over 5 school districts and show the education system that these kids deserve an education.
