”Some time ago, I found these amazing programs from Lindamood Bell, that were the first I have found to address teaching children with both hyperlexia and autism At age 9 and set to enter his 4th grade year in public school, we decided to take matters into our own hands and made the decision to homeschool our child using this amazing curriculum.
I began to research grants and message those in our amazing autism community, asking for advice… and my closest friend suggested that I reach out to the National Autism Association of North Texas. The National Autism Association of North Texas is amazing and provides genuine help and support to families living with autism, like our own. I know many of the moms personally that devote so much time and energy into helping others in our community, while living with autism in their own families. They certainly live up to this mission.
I received an e-mail that we were approved for the grant, within TWO-minutes of sharing our announcement to homeschool, and I just sat there and looked at it with tears in my eyes.
Fast-forward two-months, to today. Sam has already made TREMENDOUS progress in both Math and Reading comprehension with this curriculum, and has been using more spontaneous language, following more verbal directions and communicating more comprehension to us!
To the National Autism Association of North Texas: A thousand and one THANK YOU’s to everyone on the board of NAA-NT for helping us to say with confidence, that we not only found the BEST programs for Sam, but that we HAVE the best programs for Sam.
