Meeting Needs

Posted By on Tue, Mar 6, 2007 at 3:04 PM

Mia Madison, the mother of an autistic boy who was running up against a wall while trying to secure day care for her son, just e-mailed to tell me that the YMCA has reversed course.

"They've agreed to accommodate him and prepare for the possibility of other children like Ethan using their program," Madison wrote.

Another mother recently contacted me to say that she had gone through the same issues trying to find day care for her child some years ago, and that it was a shame that things haven't changed. Perhaps this is a step in the right direction.
