"Discover Fitness Foundation has been a real blessing to us, and Richie's progress and development is truly remarkable in a program that we would not be able to afford without your very generous scholarship. Richie has developed several skills thanks to the program, especially the ability to follow instructions, while learning to place his trust in the coaches. This has led to many other improvements such as his ability to focus and concentrate. He has also learned to have patience, take turns and to share. Not to mention the improvements to his physical abilities such as balance and how to control his movements to achieve a task. And all of this while having a lot of fun!!! While these developments may come easy for some children, they are truly remarkable in an autistic child and we believe the improvements would not have happened without the program."
