Alexander’s family’s short-term goal is to maximize his achievements both physically and cognitively during the first six years of his life—a time shown to have the most chance for success long term. Therefore, the short-term goal of Alexander’s Fund is to fund the day-to-day therapy choices made by the family in the first six years of his life.
Since Alexander is making so much progress with the programs he is being exposed to, his therapy needs keep changing. This really makes long-term fundraising goal planning very difficult. That’s why the long-term goal of Alexander’s Fund is to create a community of on-going support—both financial and social—for Alexander as he grows. Ultimately, we also want to be able to offer financial assistance to other families interested in maximizing early intervention therapies for their developmentally delayed children.
