Welcome To Kids Enabled
It’s Wednesday morning, and as usual, it has taken Mary fifteen minutes to get her 8-year-old son, Connor, out of bed. She’s tried calling his name and nudging his shoulder. She’s tried telling him, “You better wake up or I won’t have time to make your favorite breakfast.” She’s taken the blanket off his bed so he isn’t tempted to curl up and go back to sleep. And every time he just groans, “Nooo, five more minutes.”
In a classroom much like the one your child is sitting in today, there are children engaged in learning. There are children getting excited about math, history and science. There is actually a little boy who turns to his buddy during a science experiment and exclaims, “Why would anyone not go to school? Just think; if you weren’t here today you would have missed this!” Those simple words bring joy to a teacher’s heart and to a parent’s soul.
The Friends of Kids Enabled Scholarship is designed to meet the needs of the learning differences community in the Atlanta area by providing families financial access to programs that serve children with learning differences.
Kids Enabled Youth Support is a program offered by Kids Enabled which provides encouragement, education and financial support to the community of learning differences in Georgia. The goal of the program is to enable school-aged children with learning differences by offering discussion groups and workshops for parents, as well as program scholarships for children to better their educational and social wellbeing.
There are incredible resources in the Atlanta area for the 1-in-5 child who struggles with learning differences. These resources come at a cost – a high cost that is not covered by insurance or the public school system. Families are making very hard choices. They have to forego some therapies and educational interventions when their funds do not stretch far enough to cover the costs. There are parents who are spending thousands every month to pay for speech therapy and just waiting until they can afford the tutoring and social skills counseling that they also know are needed.
Kids Enabled created the Friends of Kids Enabled Scholarship Fund to help with these costs. We are able, through donations from our community, to fund therapies for children who would otherwise go without. In partnership with Kroger, you can be the difference between success and going without. It is as simple as using your Kroger card when you shop for your family and our scholarship fund can grow to support families who need additional therapy for their children. Who knows? It may even be your child who benefits!
Here’s how it works -
