I am setting this up for just a few of my closest network of family/friends as many of you graciously offered to make a first or second contribution to Noah's last year at Hirsch Academy (nothing is to small as tuition is now over 30k/year and any/all assistance is greatly appreciated, but not expected).
This Private school (http://hirschacademy.org/) was a blessing like no other "tailor made" for my boy to "meet him where he is" and set him up for success at the next level for MIDDLE SCHOOL and the World as a whole (i.e. EXACTLY where his steps were ordered to be)!!!!!!
I've kept my note below from Year 1 to provide a brief background and will keep you all abreast of his progress over the next 6 months.
P.S. Most of you know I am anti social media (really not even sure why anymore.....lol) so please do not post this link as I specifically intended for it to be sent to "my people"!! MUCH LOVE!!
Year 1 note-
Friends and Family, Most of you know our oldest child Noah Isaiah Williams was diagnosed with Autism roughly 10 years ago. From day one we knew we had a journey ahead of us with no idea just what to expect; but, willing and ready to DO whatever and GO wherever needed to help our children! The many seasons in our families' lives have been filled with many ups and downs, joys/pains, multiple relocations, NUMEROUS therapy sessions DAILY, strict dietary requirements, daily biomedical treatments/supplements and financial burdens along with many blessings along the way…….today begins another!!! Our Noah has finally started school (Away from home….. lol)! A very small special private school called Hirsch Academy (http://hirschacademy.org/) that has EXACTLY what we prayed for (and more) to continue his progression for the most optimal growth emotionally, physically, socially. Most importantly, Hirsch Academy satisfies our educational requirements with a curriculum and class structure that is most compatible with his unique learning style. While Noah has far surpassed many of the milestones that we were told verbally and in writing that he would NOT overcome (............... BUT GOD), we realize he still has a long way to go. What the World perceives as negative associated with having multiple children diagnosed with Autism has actually become one of OUR GREATEST GIFTS in making our entire family better people!!! This is ANOTHER GREAT BEGINNING in Noah's life. This special school obviously comes with a special cost (i.e. $29,500/year tuition) so we are asking those in our circle to assist Noah with any donation you deem appropriate (nothing is to low or high) as he begins this new journey towards independence, self-sufficiency and educational excellence!
