Why I'm ParticipatingOur son, our family, has benefitted tremendously from the Greater Expectations program. We have watched him grow in confidence, advocating for his wants and needs at home and at school. He's beginning to develop the building blocks for his future as he considers high school classwork, post-secondary training, potentially learning to drive, and basic life skills. We are so grateful the Greater Expectations program setting individuals up with social, emotional, life and job skills necessary to participate in our communities. Recently we were stopped in a grocery store by a man and his son. They were wearing matching Autism Avenue (Great Expectations) T-shirts, so were we. The father shared with us his hope his son would participate in the Greater Expectation program when he's older. We immediately partnered with Autism Avenue and began this campaign. While our son will graduate from the program in a couple of summers, we want to make sure the program is available for other families who are just receiving the diagnosis and just learning how all the puzzle pieces fit together.
I have raised a total of $25 since January 11, 2019.
