Our children are the future. There are so many things in life that they miss out on--but this should not be our focus. The focus should be for them to live the most productive and happy life that is possible. For some, like my son, this simply means being as independent as he can be and that means having an attendant. He is a regular education student who will be going to college in two years. In fact, he is an "A" student who is taking Pre AP math and science as a high school sophmore. I want him to be able to go to school where he chooses and not depend on his parents to dress him, feed him and get him out of bed. He has told me that the most important thing for him is to be able to do as many things as he can without help from family. Without CLASS medicaid waiver, this will not be possible. A nursing facility for a bright young man? No. Isn't it our ultimate goal for those people like my son--to work and be productive citizens and not burdens to the system? Yes. With CLASS, my son can follow his dreams and have a career and a life--and be a tax paying citizen of Texas! Thank You

Thank you for supporting and advocating on behalf of all Texans who have a disability. You are respected by all, no matter where they choose to receive services, State Supported Living Centers and community supports.

People who are not caregivers for our special children or anyone with disabilites could never know the cost and extreme difficulties that familes endure. I pray that the families will continue to get the support that they truly need.
