Program: Laurie Flutie Computer Initiative

Budget:
$7,000
Category:
Education
Population Served:
Children and Youth (infants - 19 years.)
Adults

Program Description:

Through a partnership with HP, the Flutie Foundation offers between 25 and 50 computers annually to individuals with autism and the schools that serve them.  Since the program's creation in 2000, the Foundation has given over 400 computers to individuals and schools.  In 2009, HP allowed the Flutie Foundation to purchase 24 laptop computers at their cost to distribute to families and school programs serving children with Autism.  Over 145 individuals with autism will see the benefit of these donated machines while they are used at home and in a class setting.

Program Long-Term Success:

Often individuals with autism have a difficult time communicating.  Through computer technology, we have been able to assist children and adults with ASD by giving them an outlet to express their ideas and help them to excel in education.  For children who struggle with the written word, often having a keyboard and a computer opens up their educational experience dramatically leading to a lifetime of learning.

Program Short-Term Success:

In the short-term, we hope to assist families who do not have the financial means to have a computer in their home.  It is our goal to enable children with autism from less fortunate families so that they have all of the same opportunities as both their typical peers and other children with ASD whose families can afford the technology needed for them to succeed.

Program Success Monitored by:

Computer recipients are monitored via a progress report that must be filled out by a school representative or a counselor from an organization providing services to the individual who received the computer.  The report must document the recipient's progress and detail how the person has benefited from the donated technology.

Program Success Examples:

Following are notes received from the parents of our computer recipients and organizations that assist children with ASD:   "Mere words cannot express the gratitude we have for the Foundation.  Thank you so much for the lap top for my son.  This will make life so much easier for him.  Thank you from the bottom of our hearts."   "The Milford School Committee would like to extend our appreciation to you for the donation of five computers to our Autism Spectrum Disorders program.  The students with Autism in grades K-2 currently served by this program will have the opportunity to utilize these computers to assist with their pre-literacy skills, early math skills, reinforcement activities and self help programs."

Program: Fun In The Sun Water Adaptive Water Sports

Budget:
$25,000
Category:
Diseases, Disorders & Medical Disciplines
Population Served:
Mentally/Emotionally Disabled

Program Description:

Each year the Flutie Foundation partners with AccesSportAmerica in order to provide a fun and safe adaptive summer water sports program for people with autism and their families. In 2010 over 50 individuals with autism took part in the program at Reservoir Lake at Mass Hospital School in Canton, MA and at Spaulding Rehab in Boston, MA. Hundreds of people with autism have taken part in this program since its inception in 2002.

Program: Flutie Family Fence Project

Budget:
$0
Category:
Diseases, Disorders & Medical Disciplines
Population Served:
Mentally/Emotionally Disabled

Program Description:

2009 saw the beginning of this wonderful new program at the Flutie Foundation which provides fencing around the perimeter of family’s homes that could not otherwise afford it and, in turn, keeping children with autism from wandering. Wandering is one of the top concerns of the parents of children with ASD. This project was made possible through the generosity of Northeastern Fence and Supply in Saugus, MA who donated fencing for two complete fence installations in November 2009 and 2010.
