Little Noah was diagnosed with autism just before his 3rd birthday. After participating in a year-long intensive early intervention program, Noah, now 4, is set to conquer the world! Given the right resources and therapy at a critical development time in his life, Noah was able to overcome many social, speech and behavioral challenges that had once dictated his life.
These days, Noah is thriving at a regular preschool with neurotypical children. And as he progresses, Noah will require additional support services to prepare him for the real-world challenges of kindergarten! Thanks to Variety, Noah’s family will be able to give him the resources he needs to set out into this next phase of childhood – fully supported by those who understand his challenges.
Early intervention has given Noah the best gift – the ability to blossom into his truest self. And Variety’s mission of supporting intervention initiatives is setting up families for success with innovative resources otherwise not covered by insurance. In doing so, they are changing the trajectory of children’s lives and the families who support them. Thank you, Variety, for understanding the extraordinary challenges of families with special needs and providing us hope and community when we need it most!
