Along with this goal, H2O Academy, My Therapy Gym and Work4 Me are organizations where individuals with special needs and their families can attend for free swimming lessons, free occupational, physical, behavior and educational therapies, and jobs to enhance the lives of those specially gifted with their unique talents! We are also seeking to offer free music, sports and counseling, free evaluations, support groups, general and medical information, and many related services, the ones that will provide better quality of life and opportunities to succeed to our members. In conjunction with other organizations, educational and medical institutions, community programs and parents/family members/caregivers, we can attempt to create consciousness regarding the needs that these individuals and their families have.
Financial challenges are one of the most difficult areas to overcome when trying to obtain services, diagnosis and treatment for many of these individuals. Our best way of helping will be to provide assistance with some of these financial challenges by giving some of the services that are needed to these individuals. The more crucial factors that hold back these individuals from achieving their goals are lack of educators, lack of funds, lack of resources and lack of “time”. As time goes by, without the proper funding and without trained personnel to deal with new challenges, the opportunities for individuals with special needs become more limited and the frustrations becomes greater, limiting them to be successful and independent.
