WHY WE SUPPORT THEM:
After working with multiple students of varying abilities while in New York City, Samantha directly saw how autism and learning disabilities affect children's growth and development, both academically and socially. Furthermore, it became apparent how little information has been disseminated to make social interactions more welcoming and inclusive for both kids and their families. As such, it became one of the passions of her teaching career.
Mat's mother similarly shared the same passion, as she also worked with kids diagnosed with autism during Mat's youth. Naturally, she then raised Mat in an environment to be inclusive and accepting of all. Today, Samantha and Mat continue to share those values, as they incorporate them in their daily life's work, and strive to raise awareness for a disorder they are both deeply passionate about by running the London marathon for Kith and Kids.
