A work of Art

The Naperville Patch here in Illinois debuted a new weekly feature to recognize local people doing great things by honoring Art and Sandy Davis, who helped launch “Rotary and Easter Seals: Uniting Again to Change the World for People with Autism,” a multi-year fund-raising campaign. From the article:

Most recently, Art has worked to reunite Rotary International with Easter Seals through a $250,000 Rotary pledge to provide programs and materials for Easter Seals Metropolitan Chicago’s Therapeutic School and Center for Autism Research.

Art Davis also worked with the Chicago White Sox to raise funds for Easter Seals Metropolitan Chicago’s Therapeutic School and Center for Autism Research. Part of the center’s first phase, a research wing, will be named in Rotary’s honor. The $32-million facility will be built in four phases over the next few years. Link to Easter Seals Metropolitan Chicago’s web site for more information about the “house that Art built,” the Therapeutic School and Center for Autism Research.

    That was interesting! I have a 26 y/o dthugaer with autism (Asperger’s) who also has epilepsy, but interestingly her seizures started when she was young, under 3 years of age, and we attributed it to the stroke she had either right before birth, during birth or after birth (unclear timeline as we adopted her when she was a year old and records were unclear exactly what happened). But this is fascinating!thanks for sharingbetty
