THE STORY:

Here is Nicholas proudly displaying his latest science project – a model of the Solar System!  What a wonderful surprise!  Nicholas has made so much progress since he was diagnosed with autism at four years old.  I am so grateful to his teachers and all the staff at The New England Center for Children – not only for their work with Nicholas, but also for their work advancing autism education and research, helping countless children and families.

Thank you for visiting my fundraising page. I appreciate any donation you can make!  Autism touches so many lives – directly through our children, grandchildren and loved ones or indirectly through our friends and neighbors.  Autism is a heartbreaking diagnosis.  We were devastated when Nicholas was diagnosed.  In a moment, our hopes and dreams for his bright future and happy life were gone.  As a family, we tirelessly sought to find educational programs, specialists, therapies and resources to help Nicholas.  We were again devastated when we faced the harsh reality that there were very few autism-focused resources available to help him.   

NECC changed that reality for Nicholas as it has for so many children and families living with autism.  NECC is not just a school.  It is a remarkable place that, for the past 35-years, has been devoted to making life better for all individuals with autism.  Its education and research efforts go far beyond its Southborough campus.  NECC prepares teachers to move into public schools and work in specialized autism programs around the country.  It partners with universities to host on-site Masters and Doctoral programs that not only better prepare teachers but also advance autism research.  NECC’s education and research efforts have also resulted in the development of the Autism Curriculum Encyclopedia (ACE), a break-through resource that is available to educational programs and teachers.  It provides assessment tools, lesson plans, and teaching materials to help develop and maintain a quality autism-focused education.  NECC also works directly with many school districts establishing and fostering strong, local autism programs.  Moreover, NECC looks at the continuum of need for individuals with autism including through focusing on vocational and independent-living skills development for adults. 

Thanks to NECC, we again have our hopes and dreams for Nicholas’s bright future and happy life!  NECC goes the extra mile to make life better for all people living with and touched by autism.  Now it’s my turn to go the extra 26.2 miles and run the Boston Marathon to show my gratitude and support for NECC’s mission!    

Thank you for joining me in supporting autism education and research by making a donation here today!!
