Two of the big subjects we are tackling this season on Everyday Autism Miracles are funding and help for Military families who have a child on the spectrum. This week our guest is going to be able to address both topics. Laura Marroquin is the Director of Marketing and Development for ACT Today! a non-profit organization that is devoted to providing treatment and support for children on the spectrum to reach their full potential.
ACT Today! facilitates grants for families that are in need of treatment and therapy. Frecently they began an initiative to help Military families whose children are on the Autism Spectrum.
It is maddening to think that any child could be denied treatment because of their family’s inability to pay. It is especially maddening that our service men and woman are not able to give their children the help that so many of us are able to give their children. And with all of the recent headway in insurance, Military families are excluded.
Join us this week as Laura tells us what ACT Today is doing to help families both Military and Civilian. This promises to be an inspirational show with real solutions.
