“By including children with different learning abilities in mainstream and specialized schools, we can change attitudes and promote respect. By creating suitable jobs for adults with autism, we integrate them into society.” ~ Ban Ki-moon
She has started a team in honor of her son Xavier (Zay) to raise money to support POAC Autism Services, a nonprofit organization, is making life better for every child with autism in our state. Each year POAC provides hundreds of free events for the autism community including: free training and education for parents and educators; free recreational and support services to children with Autism Spectrum Disorder and their families: and free training for police and first responders which has been life-saving for many children all over NJ.
I have created my team called Team Xavier! By click the link you can register for the walk and/or donate! My goal is $200 but if I can raise more I know it will help more children and families like my son and our family.
My son was diagnosed with Autism at the end of January. Since that diagnosed I have had my share of ups and downs but my support system has been great. From my blog community to people I see everyday. I appreciate you all and will graciously thank you for any support you are able to donate!! Thanks and hope to see some of you guys there!!
