Speech Therapy for All
Group therapy sessions, when attended even for a short amount of time, can have truly transformative effects on a child's ability to interact with others. Playing with other autistic kids while under the supervision of a teacher greatly aids the development of social skills and acts as a stepping stone for learning to engage in more difficult situations.
Donating money towards providing speech therapy for a child whose family is otherwise unable to afford it would change the lives of both the child and the family. Autistic children become autistic adults, and face a world that is not always accepting of them. By helping children from lower-income families receive therapy, you are ultimately helping to change this unfortunate reality and providing better futures for individuals who truly deserve them.
With the support of Innovative Therapy Services, a Bay Area speech clinic, we are working to provide sessions for children near Santa Clara, CA. Our goal is to raise $6000 by August 2016, with the intention of enrolling up to three children in speech/group therapy sessions in Fall 2016.
