A Message From Aden McClung
Welcome to Aden's fundraising page!
Aden's story starts when he was about 2 years old. We went to the doctor for a cold that lasted a bit too long. After having a tympanorgram, the doctor told us that he didn't think Aden could hear very well. We headed over to the ENT and ended up with tubes in his ears. We thought everything would go back to normal but that was just the beginning of our journey.
Since our journey began, we have discovered that Aden has sensory processing issues, learning delays, and obstructive sleep apnea along with many other struggles. He has had 2 surgeries and has gone through countless protocols and interventions. He did not speak until he was almost 4 years old. Although he is only 5 years old now, he has already progressed tremendously!
Early intervention, like what the Little Lighthouse provides, has given him the chance to develop cognitive and social skills through his struggles. Without people in special education, speech therapy, occupational therapy, and many other professions kids like Aden wouldn't get the chance to thrive. Aden has been on the wait-list for the Little Lighthouse for over 2 years and just got accepted for this school year! He will be able to attend LLH for 1 year and we are ecstatic for Aden to be in the nations BEST school for special needs!
Our fundraising goal is $32,000 this year! The services and private, christian school education provided by LLH is the equivalent to $32,000 per student. As you may know, LLH provides a FREE education to their students because they operate and are funded completely from private fundraising, They do not receive grants or government funding. The incredible gift of a free education to families with special needs is immeasurable in our eyes.
Thank you for donating to this incredible school in Aden's name!!!
