In 2005, I founded the Special Needs Network because I saw thousands of children with autism in underserved communities throughout California falling through the cracks. Many of these children were misdiagnosed; labeled emotionally disturbed; denied access to gold star therapies and often over-medicated simply because of their zip codes and access to qualified health care providers. These disparities were limited not just to healthcare but also were evident in the school system. In sum, our kids were failing and so were we.
#GivingTuesday gives us an opportunity to step up, speak out and say our children matter by ensuring that they have the health and educational services they rightly deserve.
Help us meet the needs of thousands of kids who are in desperate need of an accurate and timely diagnosis, costly therapies, and a chance to thrive.
