This week, in honor of National School Choice Week, we will share a story of an Ohio child whose life has changed thanks to school choice.
We begin with the Fife family's story. Their son is a recipient of the Ohio Autism Scholarship. Just this morning, it was announced that their video was a grand prize winner in the Choices in Education national video competition.
The Fife Family's Story
“His teachers say that he is a miracle because of all the developmental milestones he’s hit – way more than they expected. For us, what impresses us the most is just how much happier Paul is than he was when he started.”
– Mac, Paul's mom
When Paul was three, he wasn’t talking, and he was also aging out of his county’s early intervention program. A family friend suggested the family consider the Ohio Autism Scholarship. With the help of the scholarship, the Fifes enrolled Paul in a private school that specializes in language development, and he is also able to receive therapies at home. His mom says the change has been amazing.
