A STORY FROM OUR AGENCY:
A two-year-old autistic child enters the ACT clinic and is assessed for verbal and behavior milestones by an AmeriCorps member; the child scores a 19. After working with the child for 6 months the assessment was given to the child again, this time the child scored a 76 on the same assessment. The Child made such huge gains in his verbal and behavioral activity the child's mother became even more engaged and wanted to learn what she could do at home to increase the verbal and behavior milestones. Early intervention with Autistic Children makes huge differences in their adult lives, AmeriCorps makes a difference in lives and impacts communities.
