Contribution Supports Pilot Programs Focusing on Speech and Occupational Therapy
About 20 Nassau families struggling to support their loved ones with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) will receive extensive free occupational and speech therapy training this summer through R.E.A.C.H., thanks to a donation from Commonwealth Bank.
“Our top priority has always been to make sure every Bahamian is given access to adequate educational resources,” said Commonwealth Bank President Ian A. Jennings. “For families with children on the autism spectrum, the most valuable educational resource is knowing how to relate to the child with autism in a way that is non-threatening and encouraging. That training is one of the many valuable services that R.E.A.C.H. provides. Thus, we are proud to support them.”
