Baseball Superstar Eddie Guardado’s Foundation Grants the Wish to Communicate and Learn for Children with Autism

Major League All-Star Pitcher Eddie Guardado and his wife Lisa, have awarded ACT Today! with a $27-thousand dollar grant. The grant is dispersed from the The Eddie Guardado Foundation. Funds from the grant will be used to provide iPads to children with autism with limited communication skills. To date, ACT Today! has distributed 45 iPads to children
in need around the country.

“Because of Eddie’s career we’ve been blessed with the resources to get our daughter Ava the therapy and treatment she really needs,” says Lisa Guardado, co-founder of The Eddie Guardado Foundation. “We also know that’s just not the case for the vast majority of families affected by autism. We are so happy to be able to help organizations like ACT Today! who share our concern and are making a difference in the lives of children with autism.”
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, one in 110 children in America is diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder (ASD), making it more prevalent than pediatric cancer, juvenile diabetes and childhood AIDS. Researchers have found that children with autism tend to be visual learners who gravitate toward technology and screens and can make significant gains via certain educational technologies such as iPads and Skills®.

ACT Today! has recently established an Assisted Technology Program which to address specific needs of children diagnosed with ASD. “We’re committed to providing the families we serve with the opportunity to access these new tools which will ensure their children with autism continue to gain new abilities and reach their full potential,” says ACT Today!’s Executive Director Nancy Alspaugh-Jackson. ““We are grateful for Eddie’s and Lisa’s generosity, compassion and support which allow us to continue our mission. The response from those who have received assistance is overwhelming.”

”We have downloaded many wonderful apps that help my son Max with reading, math, and telling time. Despite years of different therapies, Max still struggles with his play skills, but the iPad has sparked his imagination with creative the apps and has become quite the social tool. We believe that Max, like his new iPad, has limitless potential. Thank you for helping him,” says Rachelle, Max’s mother.
“I saw Dustin yesterday and was excited to see him in action with his new iPad! He was so excited to show me how to use it. I love that it is an easy way to help him communicate, but hadn’t even thought about the appeal of the fun apps on there in terms of motivating his peers to interact with him,” says Behavior Therapist Taira Lanagan, MS, BCBA. ”He showed me how he can use to help him talk. I have known Dustin for 6 years and have never seen him so excited. Thank you!”

Contributions by entities like The Eddie Guardado Foundation enable ACT Today! to continue its mission of providing resources and fund grants for autism care and treatment. In the past year, ACT Today! has distributed over $240,000 in grants to families. For more information about ACT Today!, visit www.act-today.org.

NEWSFLASH --- news as it happens...things change rapidly!

Tonight - ACT Today!'s Executive Director Nancy Alspaugh-Jackson will appear LIVE on NBC Nonstop LA this evening at 7pm tonight..

Nancy will discuss the missing 8-year old autistic Twin Peaks, California boy who wandered away from school yesterday.

She'll also discuss what ACT Today! is doing to help children with autism who wander by way of distributing nearly $40,000 dollars in grants for fencing in the past eight months.

Watch with us today - NBC Nonstop LA - channel:

California Nonstop is available on every major cable system in California. In Los Angeles, the Channel can be seen over-the-air on NBC4 LA’s Digital Channel 4.2 and on the following cable systems:

Time Warner – Channel 225

Good News!

The 8-year old Twin Peaks boy was just found by search and rescue teams,moments ago!

Because of this late, breaking news, Nancy Grace will not have Nancy on today, but will bring her back at a later date.

We will let you know as soon as that date/time is confirmed.

Nancy Grace Speaks with ACT Today!'s Executive Director

Join me today, September 13th as I join CNN's Nancy Grace at 6:30pm(EST) / 3:30pm (PST). I will discuss the missing 8-year old Twin Peaks, CA boy who has been missing since yesterday.

Joshua Robb wandered away from school yesterday and has not been located.

Here's some of the points I will be sure to share on the show...

Wandering and elopement are symptoms of autism that people are not aware of. The recent drowning in Virginia and the current search for 8-year old Joshua Robb of Twin Peaks are cries for help for children with autism.

Many of our schools are not set up to deal with this problem (wandering). Our special children require special attention. Everyone needs to be aware of this critical aspect of autism to keep children safe.

ACT Today! has a specific fund for safety equipment and we provide grants for behavior therapy which actually teaches children from wandering.

Remembering 9-11

Please join us in remembering the men and women who lost their lives on September 11, 2001. Let us prayer them, the families they left behind and the brave men and women who fought for our nation's honor and freedom.

We send our thoughts and prayers...
ACT Today!

About September 11, 2001:
The September 11 attacks (also referred to as September 11, September 11th or 9/11 were a series of four coordinated suicide attacks upon the United States in New York City and Washington, D.C. on September 11, 2001. On that morning, 19 terrorists from the Islamist militant group al-Qaeda hijacked four passenger jets. The hijackers intentionally crashed two planes, American Airlines Flight 11 and United Airlines Flight 175, into the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center in New York City; both towers collapsed within two hours. Hijackers crashed American Airlines Flight 77 into the Pentagon in Arlington, Virginia. The fourth jet, United Airlines Flight 93, crashed into a field near Shanksville, Pennsylvania after passengers attempted to take control before it could reach the hijacker's intended target in Washington, D.C. Nearly 3,000 died in the attacks.

Suspicion quickly fell on al-Qaeda, and in 2004, the group's leader Osama bin Laden, who had initially denied involvement, claimed responsibility for the attacks. Al-Qaeda and bin Laden cited U.S. support of Israel, the presence of U.S. troops in Saudi Arabia, and sanctions against Iraq as motives for the attacks. The United States responded to the attacks by launching the War on Terror, invading Afghanistan to depose the Taliban, who had harbored al-Qaeda members. Many countries strengthened their anti-terrorism legislation and expanded law enforcement powers. In May 2011, after years at large, bin Laden was found and killed.

The destruction caused serious damage to the economy of Lower Manhattan. Cleanup of the World Trade Center site was completed in May 2002. The National September 11 Memorial & Museum is scheduled to open on September 11, 2011. Adjacent to the memorial the 1,776 feet (541 m) One World Trade Center is estimated for completion by 2013. The Pentagon was repaired within a year, and the Pentagon Memorial opened, adjacent to the building, in 2008. Ground was broken for the Flight 93 National Memorial in November 2009, and the memorial was formally dedicated on September 10, 2011.

ACT Today! Reacts to Hampton Virginia Girl's Tragic Death Due to Wandering

According to news reports, 5-year old Kaymania Serenity Catta, who had autism, was reported missing just before 6 p.m. on Wednesday after she apparently wandered away from her family's Hampton, Virgina home.

ATYPICAL: My Chance Meeting with a Remarkable Young Man with Asperger's

This past summer, I accompanied my husband Read to his college reunion at the beautiful campus of Hobart and Williams Smith Colleges. While visiting the campus bookstore, I found a book written and autographed by a remarkable young man, Hobart graduate Jesse Saperstein, class of 2004. After reading the book in two sittings, I reached out to Jesse, who lives in Pleasant Valley, N.Y., via email and heard back from him right away. In addition to graduating cum laude from college, and writing a published book, this young man hiked the entire Appalachian Trail and raised 20,000 dollars for pediatric AIDS and Camp TLC where he has worked as a volunteer counselor. He told me of his next project, an anti-bullying campaign featuring a video in which he skydives as as demonstration of what is possible when individuals of various abilities are allowed to shine when society chooses to give them a chance.

I have asked Jesse to write a few paragraphs as our Let's ACT Today! guest contributor.

A Plea for Mercy, Understanding, and Acceptance
from those Living with High-Functioning Autism
It is not everyday that I receive an e-mail from a beautiful and accomplished producer from Los Angeles who wishes to give me an opportunity to make a greater difference. When we first began communicating via e-mail, Nancy told me there are no accidents in life and fate allowed our dissimilar universes to overlap. I tend to agree and there is one similarity that binds us. We are both affected by the autism spectrum. I live with Asperger’s syndrome and Nancy experiences it through her amazing son, Wyatt.

Nancy, her husband Read, and their amazing child will ultimately become the veritable tripod propelling themselves through a nonsensical universe of obstacles. Their journey will be a roller coaster of euphoria; pain; hope; alleged false hope; and occasionally anger. But that is all right because no parent or individual with autism should be forced to accept the unacceptable. Embrace the fight with the Alspaugh-Jackson family and ask the rest of society to examine my plea for mercy. I will attempt to inhabit the voices of so many of my peers who are not blessed with such a large venue to be heard.

Having Asperger’s syndrome is not an excuse to engage in behavior that is genuinely inappropriate and fighting for equality also means having to accept consequences for genuine wrongs. We need you to tell us what we are doing wrong and give us the tools to correct it. But punishment is grossly ineffective without the opportunity for redemption. As a child, it was more common for me to be condemned for the bizarre or inappropriate behavior from four years ago as opposed to the leaps and bounds forged over the past few months. More important than correcting inappropriate behavior is teaching my peers how to look into the mirror once in a while to give to themselves what will not always come from someone else.

Judging someone with Asperger’s syndrome on a first impression will always be a path toward doom. Mercy shall never flourish unless we “impress” upon society there is more to those on the autism spectrum than meets the eye. Those deficiencies that need to be corrected may germinate into successes when society chooses to take another look. Weakness could turn into a strength under the right circumstances if an individual wants it badly enough. I learned that I could not accept my tendency to blurt out inappropriate comments or grossly overstep boundaries. It was impossible to “let go” of the brutal realities that were created and the threat of legal consequences for my future. Therefore, I decided to work in a funeral home for a while where only four phrases would not offend people. “Hello, goodbye, I am sorry for your loss, the bathroom is around the corner to the left.” I trained myself to walk on eggshells laced with poison and became a valuable employee because I wanted it badly enough. Never underestimate the power of “want” or the opportunity for someone with autism to justify a “chance.”

Many of us are incapable of letting go, which is one of the prominent characteristics of Asperger’s syndrome. I actually do not believe in ever letting go in the way you believe I should. “Letting go” is found in those endeavors where you are unrestrained by the anguish forged by a lifetime of intolerance. On August 9, 2011 I was able to let go while falling off the face of the earth at over one hundred miles per hour. Literally. I went skydiving in front of my entire community to try and end bullying. My associates and I are in the process of turning the footage into a YouTube video that will be promoted to the nation by the end of September. I will elaborate on this endeavor in a future blog entry. In the meantime, we have a lot to look forward to in the near future. 

People often marvel at the successes I have achieved since graduating college that would be considered outstanding even for someone without a social disability. This happened not because of maturity, but due to one simple reality. Society eventually showed me I had something to fight for and would reciprocate just a little bit when I made the effort. But as I stated in my skydiving video…nobody should have to publish a book or jump out of a perfectly safe airplane to enjoy a fraction of the respect that is finally coming from mainstream society. Fight with me to ensure this will not be the case for current and future generations of individuals who live with autism. Let’s make the 2011-2012 school year one filled with mercy. Wyatt and our peers may have to fight a little harder for a chance…but they will have more than a “fighting chance” to radiate their brilliance.

All my best,
Jesse A. Saperstein
