Many children on the autism spectrum can struggle with forming the basic sounds and words to develop a working vocabulary. Yet effective communicaiton is key for their success at school and on the playground.
In tough economic times, families struggle too, as insurance often fails to cover the full cost of speech therapy.
National Autism Association (NAA) helps close this gap and allow children to live up to their full potential through their Helping Hands program. Recognizing that with greater autism numbers comes greater need for services, this program was developed as a financial aid tool for families that need it most.
A Helping Hands grant funded by GreaterGood made sure that David got the speech therapy needed.
“The grant has significantly helped our family in many ways,” said David’s mother Belinda. “It gives us hope that our son will progress, and even though he will have challenges, he can improve even though many have said he cannot.”
