THE STORY:

As many of you know, Gina attends the Genesis school in East Meadow, an intensive ABA based school for Autistic children and adults. They helped her attend culinary school, sent a job coach to her first internships and helped integrate what she was learning in school into her work experiences. She could not have done it without the help of her teachers and aides from genesis. When she completed school at age 21, Genesis accepted her into their Adult program where she continues to make gains in social functioning, culinary skills and improving her communications. With 1 in 68 children being diagnosed as on the Autism spectrum, this school needs to continue to provide the intensive experience these kids need. Most of them have failed to learn in traditional school settings and would have nowhere else to go if Genesis did not exist. I was recently at a parent meeting and heard from many parents whose children started in the last year. Two of them told how there children had been refusing to go to their traditional school while they waited on the Genesis wait list and how their kids now went to school with smiles on their faces and had made great strides in communication. Most of the school aged children are non verbal. Imagine being that parent and having nowhere to send your child. Please help support this school. Many of you also know how Gina hates to walk if she doesn't have a good reason to walk but she has committed (or we have committed her) and is in training to walk/run the four miles of this race. Can you support her by making a small contribution? If Gina can do it, so can you, I suspect so why not join us for the walk on November 19th? Wishing you all a premature Happy Holidays! Lisa and Joe, Ali and Cristina and of course, Gina Sorrento
