THE STORY:

Laurie Cramer wrote -

Philip's Fans are the most loyal fans! Thank you for helping to raise money to support the Autism Society Greater Akron. I am not only the Executive Director of ASGA, I am also the proud mother of two boys, Philip and Robbie. Our Philip is 15 years old and lives with autism, which means our entire family also lives that journey. This year is a big one in our lives, as Philip is now considered "transition age," which means we are working even harder at preparing him for adulthood. That also means that ASGA recognizes there are lots of "transition age" youth in our area, and so one of our major initiatives this year is for that age group to help enhance their social and adaptability skills. We are also launching a swim program, because there aren't enough adapted aquatic teachers in our area (drowning is the leading cause of death for individuals with autism). Finally, we are working with our medical personnel to help them better treat and understand working with someone with an autism spectrum disorder. All of you know our family stories struggling to find a swim teacher for Philip, looking for social skills programs in our area, and finally, finding medical staff prepared for Philip (and yes, he is complicated medically). That's why having an Autism Society in our community is so important. We can join together as families affected by autism to create systemic changes that hopefully leave a better world for our children when we are gone. Until then, thank you for helping us achieve our goals!! Philip's Fans Laurie, Gregg, Philip and Robbie Cramer
