ACE and 34 other higher education associations wrote to the leaders of the House and Senate budget and appropriations committees, asking them to maintain Congress’s historic commitment” to financial aid and research in FY 2018.

After a lot of hard work and techniques to develop his speech skills, he developed age-appropriate expressive language skills and was declassified. He is now in a mainstream kindergarten class and thriving.
