Diagnosis: Autism, ADHD
Request: Out of Town Program (6 months), Academic Tutoring (6 months)
In September 2019, Variety Manitoba began funding Christian for his Out of Town Program and Academic Tutoring. Both of these programs are specific to children living with autism and are designed to help them with social and academic skill development. Christian’s Mom wrote to us about the improvements they were seeing as a result of the funding: “Christian is more confident in completing his spelling and reading assignments. He no longer debates getting into a routine. He is still reading at a low level, but we have seen some real results. He is now writing on his own, and his love for carnivorous plants has not subsided. Through the Out on the Town Programming, he has developed some amazing relationships with his peers just like him. During the pandemic, even though they only saw each other virtually, he looked forward to it every week and loved chatting with his peers about how they felt and how they were all coping. They also played online games together, which challenged him and forced him to practice his reading.” You can help Christian continue to achieve these milestones by donating today and helping fund his Out of Town Program and Academic Tutoring costs.
