Our grandson attends ALG. He's only been there a few months and the things he has learned are astounding. We are sure that attending ALG will give him the skills and lessons he will need to have a fulfilling and satisfying life. We are blessed that he is where he should be. He turns our life around with his amount of learning, his smiles and his love.
ALG is not just a school, it's a place where hope is given to parents who feel they have no where to turn, and confidence and a sense of worth is given to children and teachers alike. Having an autistic child is one of the most challenging hardships a family can face in their life. We are not able to choose the cards we are dealt, but we are able to choose what we make of it. ALG is an inspiring place. ALG is a place where futures are changed, real life miracles really do happen, and it shows that in life, we can always hope for a better tomorrow. The community surrounding ALG- the teachers, parents, children, siblings of children, and strangers alike, are all affected by the way in which this school has been a constant source of inspiration for all who are lucky enough to witness it's endeavors. ALG doesn't just help childen. It truly changes lives.
We have had the wonderful experience working Alpine Learning Group in the following capacities; as their auditor, as a donor, as volunteers and as a member of the general public. I know first hand that Alpine does an exceptional job at using donations in the manner for which they are designated -- I am their auditor. Additionally, their cause is one that is growing - I can remember when we first started dealing with the Organization that children with autism was somewhere around 1 in 50 and I believe now is 1 in 150 (or even more). Their knowledge of the Organization's mission and their efforts to follow that mission are astounding. This is evident through our roles as volunteers and donors. They ensure everyone is on the same page and they get the job done -- helping to educate the community and their staff about autism and educating their students to be an important part of society through their school programs. We've always had a pleasant experience in all capacities working with Alpine. They are truely a great Organization - A great Non-profit.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
Typically my capacity as the Organization's auditor does not allow me to interract with the Children for whom this Organization supports. However, due to maintenance being performed at the school - this year the audit team sat in the back of it's largest rooms to perform our audit. It was the first time I saw an autistic student who hadn't spoken before say one of his first words with the help of a teacher. It was also the first time that I saw an autistic student sing a song along with playing a piano.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Try to figure out different ways they could get funding for an adult program so that their students had a place to go once they graduated.
