Why is Jacob Smiling?
Jacob likes technology, strategy games and science fiction, but he spends a lot of time alone, and has trouble making friends. When you give to Highfields, you help students like Jacob find a place to fit in.

    Jacob is an introvert. He's shy and likes to keep to himself by reading quietly or writing in his notebook. Although he does well in school, it is difficult for him to socialize with his peers.
   "I had trouble fitting in at school," Jacob admitted. "I didn't know how to communicate with my classmates."
   He decided to join Highfields' after-school program, Reaching Higher, because he wanted to make new friends and have help with his homework.

Finally, a Solution!
Thanks to you, 10-year-old Gabe (and his parents) can sleep through the night.
Gabe sleeps soundly under a weighted blanket.
    Children with Autism Spectrum Disorders have challenges ranging from social-interaction difficulties, sleep dysfunctions, and repetitive behaviors.
   Josie and Jim's 10-year-old son, Gabe, had similar symptoms, but it took them 10 years to get a diagnosis.
   "It's been an ongoing battle because Gabe's symptoms have changed throughout the years," said Josie. "Some have improved, some have gotten worse."
