  Jim Calhoun Speaks to Autism
  On September 26, Oak Hill and Leadership Greater Hartford jointly presented “Ringing in on Autism: A
  Symposium for Connecticut Educators and Administrators,” a unique event which provided practical information
  about efforts to increase autism awareness in school systems on the behavioral, education, political and medical
  fronts. The symposium, the first of its kind in Connecticut, featured keynote speaker Jim Calhoun, legendary head
  coach of the UCONN Men’s Huskies Basketball Team, in addition to a panel of experts who shared information
  and best practices with over 260 attendees. Keynote speaker Jim Calhoun is deeply involved with “Autism Speaks,”
  an organization that helps raise public awareness and research funding for autism, an issue close to Calhoun’s heart.
  Facilitating the session was Stan Simpson, Hartford Courant columnist. Panelists included Atty. Howard
  Klebanoff (Special Education Rights attorney), Dr. Inge-Marie Eigsti (University of Connecticut), Suzanne Letso
  (CT Center for Child Development), along with Nancy Hines and Kathy Piquette (Hartford Public School
  teachers, specializing in autism).

 A Call to Action: Legislative Update
Oak Hill is working with community provider agencies to ask Governor Jodi M. Rell and the State legislature
to support the Community Providers Rescue Fund designed to: stabilize our funding base with a $135 million
immediate infusion; form a commission to consider a long term indexing solution to address chronic
underfunding; and create an annual $65 million capital improvement fund to maintain facilities. While this
newsletter is being prepared, there will be a public hearing on legislation supporting the Community Provider
Rescue Fund. This is being raised in the Human Services Committee and we are very grateful to Senator Jonathan
Harris for his leadership on this. Depending on the outcome of that hearing, we may need your help in contacting
your local legislators for their support of this bill that will ensure adequate funding for Oak Hill and other
non-profits. Please contact Gwen Williams at williamsg@ciboakhill.org or at 860-242-2274 to find out how
you can help.

At the November 2007 Bank of America’s Hartford Neighborhood Excellence InitiativeTM Awards,
Steve Famiglietti, manager of Oak Hill’s Vocational Center for People who are Blind or Visually Impaired,
was recognized as a Local Hero – people who have special and significant impact on individuals, families, or
communities. As a local hero, Steve received a $5,000 grant which he donated to Oak Hill.

Congratulations to the John A. Coccomo, Sr. Foundation for being chosen to receive the 2007 Raymond
E. Baldwin Award from the Board of Education and Services for the Blind. Nominated by Oak Hill, the
Coccomo Foundation has enhanced the lives of hundreds of people who are blind and is most deserving
of this award that recognizes an individual, agency, civic organization, or volunteer group who has made
outstanding contributions to the betterment and enrichment of the lives of persons who are blind in
Connecticut.
