For Julie and her peers, every day counts. When she misses her therapy sessions for 2-3 days due to a cold or sickness, it takes her almost two weeks to return to her learning routine, re-acquire the skills she had before the interruption and capture the ground she lost.
Keep Julie healthy and on track by helping us purchase the Zono® Sanitizing Cabinet which will cut down learning time lost due to colds and sickness. In 30 minutes, the waterless Zono® Sanitizing Cabinet, a revolutionary machine, can sanitize toys, keyboards, mats, crayons and stuffed animals and reduce the transfer of germs and colds from child to child.
This will enable them to stay engaged and continue to learn. In fact, a 50% reduction in sick time would mean 65 weeks of therapy time devoted to progress instead of catch-up. .

About Potential Annual Appeal
Every parent knows the frustration of a sick child. When winter starts, kids seem to be magnets for colds and infections and the more children congregate in a space, the more likely they are to transfer germs to each other by sharing toys, equipment and art supplies. Last winter, our clients lost 127 days of therapy.
As the number of clients has been growing steadily, we became concerned about the possibility of losing more days and had to find a solution. Because it is not only the days without therapy, it's the weeks it takes to get them back in full learning mode. That is why it is so important that you help keep Julie and her friends healthy.
Please help by donating to Potential, to a friend's page, share it on social media, or start your own page and invite your friends to donate to it.
Because they share more than blocks, Julie and her friends will progress faster thanks to your generosity.

Because they share more than blocks, Julie and her friends will progress faster thanks to your generosity. Studies have shown that the earlier and more intense the intervention, the better are the chances of a child with autism to catch up to their typical peer group, as shown in the graph nearby.
