                                                  four year old NECC student, Patrick, and his family.
                                                  With more than 24,000 children diagnosed with autism each year and
                                                  most public school systems lacking the money or resources to treat
                                                  them, CBS News reported that being a student at NECC made Patrick
                                                  “one of the lucky ones.” Patrick’s dad, Bob Ruzzo, supported that
                                                  argument saying that Patrick’s acceptance into NECC was “the
                                                  equivalent of getting into Harvard.”
                                                  For families across the country like the Ruzzos, dependence on tax
                                                  revenues in their hometowns is a way of life. Although the new bill
                                                  signed by President Bush earmarks millions of dollars for autism
                                                  research, it offers little for care or services. The Ruzzos said research is

In October, NECC received support from
the 5th Annual WPI Homecoming Golf

$1,000 of the tournament’s proceeds
to benefit our Annual Fund.

NECC Is Up For The Challenge
NECC has received a Challenge Grant from The Kresge Foundation of Troy, Michigan which could

    Student Council Holds Annual Election
    In November, candidates for student council were given the
    pre-election opportunity to make speeches and voice their ideas.
    Then, on election day, students voted for their favorite candidates.

    2007 school year are: President - Roshawn, Vice President - Mike,
    Secretary - Chris, Treasurer- Daniel, Public Relations - Lamar.

                                         Everyone Had A Ball
                                         In October, the Student Council hosted its first “Costume Ball.”
                                         Students danced the night away to the music of DJ Dave and
                                         participated in a doughnut eating contest and a monster parade.
                                         Monster parade winners were Ricky as a popular comic book
                                         character, Josh as the werewolf, and Sam as a penguin. All the
                                         students had a great time and they can’t wait until next year’s
                                         costume ball.

Writing A Letter For Foxy
Last June, Linda and Bill Wood, grandparents of NECC
student “Foxy,” attended Grandparent’s Day. Before the visit
they were already aware of NECC’s work with Foxy, but they
found it “amazing” to learn about NECC first hand.

They were so affected by their experience that Linda wrote a
letter to family and friends. She gave insight into “the pain-
ful realities of a family with a child with autism,” relaying her
family’s thoughts and feelings when Foxy was diagnosed in
2001. “Imagine watching your once babbling toddler slip into
silence,” Linda wrote.

In addition, she praised NECC saying the hours her daughter
had spent fighting for services had been “truly rewarded” when
Foxy was admitted to NECC. “Their motto is ‘We Open
Doors.’ They certainly have for Foxy,” Linda added.                            Bill, Linda and Foxy

Linda and Bill used the letter as a fundraising piece (raising
$6,000 for NECC) and urged recipients to “seriously consider” donating to the Capital Campaign.

All of us at NECC appreciate these special grandparents’ efforts for our school.
