They donate money, along with Land and Sea Sports Clubs, in order for the children to have a place to play on days that school is closed.

Justice looks like every other 10 year-old boy, except he is a child with Autism. He was diagnosed at 15 months old because his Grandmother, Momma Lil, noticed he didn’t speak, didn’t respond to his name or make eye contact. At 19 months old he started 8 hours a week of home school, which quickly escalated to 20 hours ABA and two hours of speech. Six months after that, he was enrolled in the Developmental Disabilities Institute for full days of school and ten hours ABA home school as well as two hours of speech. September 2005, he was enrolled at DDI’s Young Autism Program and he had started to request independently.

Justice loves to swim, salsa dance, play basketball, bike ride and listen to music ( he loves the Black Eyed Peas).
