As many of you are aware, our James was diagnosed with Autism in July 2022. He is the most loving, brilliant, insightful, and beautiful child. James is pure magic and we are so lucky he is ours! Due to our immense privilege, we can provide our baby with the best ABA (applied behavioral analysis) therapists/teachers, who have become the heart of our family. James is flourishing in both the home and center-based environments; learning tailored pre-school curriculums, new skills, and playing with all his friends.
However, many ASD families are not as fortunate as we are. They need our support to access critical programs that support their children now and for years to come. Further, the scientific, higher educational community, (i.e.: my sister, Lauren Schnell, Ph.D.) needs critical funding to continue their vital ABA research efforts. Please consider joining my team and supporting the 2023 Autism NYC Walk by clicking on the link at the bottom of this email. Feel free to forward this email to your friends and family as well! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
PS- Our extended loving family and friends will be joining us at our first Autism Speaks walk in NYC. We are so excited to walk with immense pride and join this amazing cause!
With Love & Gratitude,
Lyndsay, John, Sophia, Joseph & James Lusardi
