My son was diagnosed with autism in 2013.  Project iAm became part of our lives that same year.  My son responds to Applied Behavioral Analysis (A.B.A.) therapy, in a classroom setting.  A therapy frequently not covered by insurance.  Project iAm has granted his scholarship requests, which provided A.B.A. therapy through the summer months.  This continuity in care has allowed him to continue to progress, rather than regress during the summer months.  Without the aid of Project iAm, the cost would have prohibited the continued care for him.  He has made great strides because of their generosity. However, Project iAm is so much more than a scholarship program.  Their efforts raise public awareness, especially in Toledo, of the prevalence of autism in our community.  They pull together families who struggle with autism, and provide the resources families need to continue their battle.  They provide amazing entertainment to raise money for programs that families struggling with autism desperately need.  I have volunteered at some of these events, and have been in awe of both the event itself, and of the support from the people who attend and volunteer.  It was inspiring to see the support from the community, it was time spent helping those in need like my son, and it was a good time.  Thank you Project iAm! - Kristy
