A Message From the ACCESS Executive Director Transforming systems that shape our organization and making bold changes to serve our families more efficiently and effectively has been a high priority. We not only developed a three-year plan to upgrade our infrastructure, but also made tremendous progress with internal solutions to better support our staff. In addition, we created a capital improvements plan for both campuses including renovations to provide therapeutic and educational impact around every corner. Some of those have already begun!

Tammy Simmons, , M.S., CCC-SLP Executive Director, Co-Founder

Dear ACCESS Friends, The past year has been everything except business as usual. Each day continues to bring new challenges, but our team continues to deliver creative innovation in the classrooms, therapy sessions, vocational programs, community engagement and beyond. Our team’s passion embodies the mission of our organization: Expanding Individual Potential Through Innovation Instruction. We go beyond our promises for quality services by offering a fun, engaging, meaningful experience where people can grow and flourish. In that type of atmosphere, anything is possible! Despite difficult economic times, we were fortunate to have the opportunity to look deep into the heart of ACCESS to Optimize Organizational Operations.

Beyond just our traditional therapy, education and evaluation services, ACCESS was able to provide support services in areas of greatest need during these unusual times. Through our expanded mental health program, professionals were present to help families find strength and peace amidst a world of chaos. When the community was closing its doors, our Waiver staff was there to help clients and their families find new ways to integrate into a changing community. Finally, our job training program for adults with disabilities, Project SEARCH Arkansas: ACCESS Initiative in partnership with Arkansas Rehabilitation Services, was a huge success with 93% of our 2020 program graduates finding employment, even in a global economic crisis. How did we accomplish this during such a challenging year? It’s simple. With the hard work and dedication of an amazingly talented staff, and a Board of Directors committed to our mission to ensure not only viability, but the highest standard of quality possible. And it’s because of YOU, a strong community of philanthropists. ACCESS had a recordbreaking year of fundraising, even without being able to host the traditional fundraising events upon which we depend. Our steadfast supporters made it possible to acquire financial resources to support daily operations with the additional costs associated with this season.


Looking forward, the way we operate in our community will be much different. At ACCESS, we are excited for the challenge, and we have robust strategic initiatives for the upcoming year. (Read more on page 29.) As you read through our 2021 Impact Report, it is our hope that you share in the pride our team feels with each success achieved, both big and small. You will experience a glimpse of how ACCESS has unlocked potential throughout our community. In the coming year, we plan to continue to turn the key that builds brighter futures for those we serve, and we invite you to join us for the journey. How can you support the ACCESS mission and make a meaningful impact for our community? Read more about how you can give the gift of time, resources, and advocacy in this year’s Impact Report.

Change a Life. Unlock Potential.

BE THE KEY. Be the key. Be the key that unlocks potential for children, students, and adults so they may achieve their fullest potential. Together, we can continue to change lives. All my best,

ACCESS Programs Since 1994, ACCESS has been offering services to individuals with developmental delays, language and learning disorders, and other special needs. Through the years, the organization has expanded to bring new services to those we serve based on the need within the community.

ACCESS Early Childhood ACCESS Early Childhood is a language intensive program that uses a unique, literacy-based curriculum, team approach, and specially-engineered classrooms to help children with developmental delays receive the early intervention they need.

ACCESS Evaluation & Resource Center The ACCESS Evaluation Center uses a variety of services to help youth and adolescents unlock their true potential. Through comprehensive evaluations and neuropsychological evaluations, our team of experts are able to discover a client’s unique patterns of strengths and weaknesses to determine underlying developmental, learning, behavioral or mental health diagnoses. Once identified, our evaluators can help create a plan to help clients achieve success.


ACCESS Academy The ACCESS Academy is Arkansas’s most comprehensive school for children with language and learning disabilities or developmental delays. Specialized teaching methods, a team approach, and individualized goals give school-aged children the confidence and tools they need to achieve personal success.


Now, ACCESS offers an array of programs tailored to clients with a variety of needs that positively impact each individual’s journey toward a brighter future.

ACCESS Therapy

Mental Health Counseling

Therapy is the heart of what we do at ACCESS and the foundation upon which our organization is built. Through speech, occupational, physical, and feeding therapies, our team of experts work with clients to develop the skills needed to participate more fully within their communities.

The ACCESS Evaluation and Resource Center houses ACCESS’s mental health program. Our team of mental health experts offer counseling for youth and adolescents for a variety of diagnoses such as anxiety, depression, and more. With an array of strategies at their disposal, these experts can tailor a plan to each child and family to give them the tools they need to embrace their challenges and better enjoy their daily lives.

ACCESS Adult Programs

Comprehensive Psychological Evaluation vs. Neuropsychological Evaluation Comprehensive psychological evaluations at ACCESS provide the diagnosis of conditions that affect children’s academic and social success, such as learning disorders, ADHD, and autism spectrum disorder, as well as emotional and behavioral challenges. Psychological evaluations provide parents and educators with academic accommodations and psychosocial interventions that support educational success. A neuropsychological evaluation at ACCESS generally includes all the areas assessed in the comprehensive psychological evaluation. In addition, depending on the referral issue, the neuropsychologist may systematically assess attention, executive functions, learning and memory, sensorimotor skills, language, and psychological factors that contribute to academic difficulties and that co-occur with conditions such as learning disorders and ADHD. In other words, neuropsychological assessment provides additional insight into the cognitive processes that underlie a child’s academic, social, emotional, and behavioral struggles. Many parents find that a neuropsychological evaluation provides a greater breadth of understanding of their child’s strengths and individual needs, and that it provides for targeted interventions for success at home, school, and in the community. A neuropsychological evaluation is helpful in understanding the cognitive effects of neurologic conditions such as seizures, brain injury, hydrocephalus, and cerebral palsy. ACCESS’s onsite neuropsychologist offers both kinds of evaluations, giving families options that allow them to choose the services that best meet their needs.

Academic Therapy/Dyslexia Intervention ACCESS offers specialized learning instruction for individuals with language or learning disabilities to give them the tools they need for academic success. Services may be provided at a client’s school or in person at ACCESS.

Making an Impact “My child’s evaluator made him feel very comfortable during his evaluation. The results from the testing were very thorough. Since then, my child’s IEP has been amended. He is receiving dyslexia intervention and getting accommodations for both dyslexia and dysgraphia.” – ACCESS Parent


Expanding Mental Health Services for Children and Adolescents Many times, children or adolescents struggle with mental health and behavioral issues for a variety of reasons, from coping with a disability, traumatizing events, school-related anxiety, and more. At ACCESS, our team of licensed behavioral health therapists help clients, along with their family members, identify these issues and resolve them through appropriate, evidence-based mental health therapy models for children and adolescents.

Strategies & Interventions


"Before receiving PCIT, our morning routines were chaotic and exhausting. We were unable to go anywhere outside of our home because of Hudson’s social anxiety. After starting therapy at ACCESS, we went from stressful mornings full of resistance and defiance to our son being able to get dressed on his own and the whole family walking out the door without tears! PCIT even helped our family go out to eat for the first time in over a year. Soon afterward, we tried bowling and just last week, Hudson asked to go to the grocery store with me! Our time together in therapy was a safe place as we built trust and nurtured our love for one another. Each week we all looked forward to our special time together." - Crystal Pennington, ACCESS Parent

ACCESS is excited to expand its mental health services! During the 2020-21 FY, ACCESS added one mental health professional in order to serve more families. Because of the significant demand for services, ACCESS has expanded its mental health therapy rooms and added a state-of-the-art PCIT family room, and we look forward to adding additional therapists this fiscal year so we may serve more clients, along with their families. support to help them find and maintain competitive, integrated employment. 11

Unlocking Potential Through Therapy Therapy is the heart of what we do at ACCESS and the foundation upon which our mission was founded 27 years ago. Our team of therapists are more than just experts. They go above and beyond everyday to help each client unlock potential within themselves. We caught up with Molly Ramsey, ACCESS Speech-Language Pathologist and Early Childhood Speech Therapy Team Leader, to learn more about what drives success for our therapy programs.

for young children includes providing information, teaching strategies, and lots of feedback to families. Sometimes children need short-term services to help them “catch up” on skill acquisition, but other children may need long-term services.

child. Progress may involve improved comprehension skills, an increased vocabulary, speech that is more easily understood by others, improved independence with overall communication, or more successful social interactions with their peers.

As children move into school, speech therapy still targets language and articulation disorders, but it becomes more focused on academic and/or functional life skills.

What advice would you give to parents who feel like their child may be showing some delays in language or other developmental delays?

What makes therapy at ACCESS unique? We have such a talented, creative, and dedicated group of speech, occupational, and physical therapists at ACCESS. Our therapists are compassionate and form wonderful relationships with their clients and their families. They are also insightful and able to recognize the needs of each individual child. Many of our therapists continue their education/training in their specific areas of interest which allows us to have individual experts in various treatment areas on our teams. That niche training and specialization has even led to the creation and expansion of ACCESS’s feeding therapy program!

What are some of the most common reasons children may need speech therapy during early childhood? How do those needs change as children get older and approach school-age? The most common areas of need we treat at the Early Childhood campus are delays in receptive language, expressive language, social interaction/play skills and articulation. We also work with children who are hearing impaired, have dysfluencies in their speech, or experience difficulties with feeding. Early intervention services may be short-term or long-term, but it is critical that services involve the family, and not just the child. Speech therapy 12

The ACCESS team approach creates an environment where therapists and educators collaborate for their clients both in and outside of the classroom. How does that affect the way your approach therapy with a client? The team approach at ACCESS allows teachers and therapists a better opportunity to treat the whole child. When collaborating as a team, we each bring to the table our area of expertise while collectively pursuing common overall goals for the child’s success and independence. As a therapist, how do you define success for your clients? Success for my clients certainly looks different for each

You should speak with your child’s doctor or request an evaluation if you feel your child may be delayed in an area. It is important to ask questions and seek information from professionals. Sometimes concerning behaviors may turn out to be developmentally age-appropriate. If early intervention is deemed necessary, it is best to begin therapy services as soon as possible.

Innovative Instruction for All

Finding the Potential in Every Child

Lori Roberts, or “Mrs. Lo” as most know her, has been working with kids in some capacity since 1986. But her last six years as a two-year-old teacher at Early Childhood has brought about a purpose for which she never knew she was searching.

concepts that being taught, all the while using picture symbols for language support. “We are able to adapt every area to bring each individual child along in the way that he or she can at that time,” explains Lo. “This breaking down and expanding of the intricate parts of the story really can be magical!”

Undiagnosed with ADHD and a processing disorder for the first 30 years of her life, Lo struggled to find where she “fit,” and she struggled with pieces of her life that should have come easily. As Lo eventually found her way to ACCESS first as a teacher’s assistant and then a teacher, she felt that her personal experience with learning disabilities prepared her to understand how to teach a classroom of children with varying abilities. “I am grateful for my ADHD and my processing challenges for they have formed in me an understanding of how important it is to look at each child that enters my room as an astounding, brilliant, unique person that has been put on this earth for a beautiful and important purpose,” explains Lo. “I see my job as one that offers a wonderful opportunity to nurture their spirits with love, boundaries, play, and challenges that stretch them, where they can grow in confidence and find joy in all that they are!” The ACCESS Early Childhood curriculum allows for that flexibility to adapt to every child in their own journey. “I always believed in the value of play, literature, and out-of-the-box approaches to teaching, but after working at ACCESS, I understand in a much deeper and fuller way how play in a young mind invites a joy and connection to the real world,” says Lo. “ACCESS’s unique curriculum was thoughtfully written and created by its founders. Their expertise in their fields, their knowledge of children’s development, and their insight into the different ways a child’s mind can take in information, process it, and become something meaningful and educational has led to an integrative curriculum that first begins with a story – literature – that engages a child’s imagination.” Those pieces of children’s literature are then expanded upon using art, language, and multi-sensory concepts to break down each story and expand the


these little humans.” While the age itself can be trying, Lo embraces the flexibility of the ACCESS curriculum to provide a full educational experience for every child, including those with and without disabilities or delays. “Each and every child that enters our classroom comes with their own set of strengths and challenges, regardless of their being typical or having needs or delays that require therapy and special understanding of their specific diagnoses or disability,” shares Lo. “The parents of these children in my care are counting on me to teach, love, nurture, and help their child along on their journey of growth and to meet the individual goals set before them.” But the individual children are not just learning developmental skills in Lo’s room. They are discovering so much more. “It is a marvelous experience to watch these children care for and enjoy helping one another, no matter their differences,” Lo boasts with pride. “In a world that is often fearful of differences and will even try to eradicate certain disabilities because of its lack of understanding and knowledge, our students are not only not seeing the differences but enjoying their similarities. Every child has the privilege and opportunity of knowing firsthand the depth of friendship formed over common ground where others might only see all that is different.”

Lo works with two-year-olds, and she claims she wouldn’t have it any other way. “The time between 24 and 36+ months is one of the most wondrous and expansive times of growth and change in a child’s life! They are literally living sponges, ready to soak up all the world has to give and teach,” Lo expands. “They are master explorers, adventurers, and feelers! Nothing is small potatoes to

The ACCESS Early Childhood program is designed to integrate education, therapy, and a unique, languagerich curriculum to create an immersive, early intervention environment. However, the children are not the only ones impacted by its magic. Even teachers like Lo find that they unlock their own potential in its encouraging atmosphere. “ACCESS is the coming together of the many pieces of my 35+ years of experience with children like a beautiful puzzle God had been designing and planning all along,” reflected Lo. “My husband said I was like a painter without the paints or a canvas before I started working at ACCESS.” We are grateful for the many artists like Lo who are dedicated to serving the ACCESS mission through the early childhood program. Without their passion and commitment, we would not be able to unlock the potential with each one of our students.


A Full Learning Experience “ACCESS Early Childhood uses a unique, literacy-based curriculum to teach children of all abilities through a language-rich, multisensory approach that promotes development throughout early childhood. Vocabulary by the age of three is a strong indicator of future academic success, so our inhouse curriculum integrates language and communication in a wide variety of ways to give our students the tools they need for a bright future.” - Monika Garner-Smith, ACCESS Early Childhood Director, Co-Founder

Unlocking Brighter Futures at the ACCESS Academy ACCESS Life Lab: Promoting Independence Thanks to grant funding opportunities, the ACCESS Academy was thrilled to add a new space to campus: the ACCESS Life Lab. The Family and Consumer Science classroom is a lab for independent living designed to teach essential life skills. ACCESS occupational therapist Krysta Rupp explains, “Just like so many of the unique experiences students receive at ACCESS, the Life Lab brings innovative instruction to therapies as well as the classroom. It allows for the familiarity of a home kitchen, laundry, and bedroom setting to teach, demonstrate, and practice a variety of home-living skills within a safe learning environment. In many ways, it merges the academic skills taught in the classroom with the functional skills of therapies that are needed for a thriving adulthood.”

Making an Impact “We are beyond pleased with the progress our son has made in his short time at ACCESS. The academy, staff, therapists, teachers, administrators, and other students have made his transition positive and extremely encouraging. ACCESS Academy has been a blessing for our family.” -ACCESS Academy Parent

As a therapist, Krysta says she has been thrilled to jump into this new learning environment with her students. “I am able to allow for hands-on teaching, demonstration, and problem-solving in an environment that allows for trial and error,” she shares. “Every student that has been brought into the Life Lab has had the same look of awe and gratitude as they see a space that has been lovingly decorated and crafted to represent a home, feels cozy, and represents independence and maturity. The students recognize and appreciate the need for practice in cooking, laundry, bedmaking, cleaning, hanging and folding clothes and so much more, and they view the Life Lab as their space to learn and grow.” This program allows Academy students to develop skills that enable them to become critical thinkers and enhances their capacity to meet personal, family, career, and community challenges they will face in adult life. We are proud to add this unique environment to our curriculum to build brighter futures in every aspect of our students’ lives.

Finding the Key to Warren’s Future: His Journey to Independence

At three years old, Warren’s mother took him to the park to play. While comparing notes during small talk with the other moms, it became clear to Clarke that her son, nonverbal at the time, needed a little extra help. “I was explaining all about Warren and his language delays to my friend, and she said ‘It sounds like he has apraxia,’” remembered Clarke. “I went home and looked it up online.” That same friend told Clarke about ACCESS. Clarke made the call, and that’s how it all started. “All I could feel when we found ACCESS was just relief,” said Clarke. “I knew this was the greatest thing for Warren - a one-stop shop where he could get his education and all of his therapy together.” Warren started at ACCESS due to speech delay, but through a variety of evaluations over the next few years, he was also diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder. “When I realized how much help Warren needed, I dove in headfirst. Every day, I did whatever I needed to do for him. As a parent, you just want to fix it,” she said. “I remember one of Warren’s ACCESS team members telling me, ‘You’ve got to learn to just play with your child,’ because it got to the point where everything was a lesson. And when I did that, it changed a lot for me because I had just been trying so hard to do it all.” Warren continued his journey at ACCESS, making progress a little at a time. When the school added a cafeteria, his therapists worked with him to vary his diet and develop better eating skills. When behaviors were an issue at home, his ACCESS Academy team worked with Clarke to create a plan for Warren’s success. “The people at ACCESS are as much in my life out of school as they are in school,” declared Clarke. “It can’t be any other way when you have a child that is on the spectrum or disabled in some way. You have to have a huge support team.” Five years ago, Warren was ready to enter high school, and he was placed in Mr. George’s Upper School class. “When a student enters my class, it takes me a long time to get to know the student and to try to figure out how I can help him,” said George Robertson who has been teaching for 30 years, the last 12 of those at the ACCESS Academy. “I discovered that Warren was direct, easily frustrated and anxious. These traits made it difficult for him to navigate a complex world. I also discovered that he is very sensitive and loving. He cares tremendously about the


Unlocking Brighter Futures at the ACCESS Academy people (and animals) in his life. Warren wants to please the people he cares about and gets upset if he thinks he has disappointed anyone he loves.”

make his favorite things, and it has become something he wants to do for a living. That’s his goal, to work in a restaurant in some way so that he can cook.”

Over time, Warren matured, and he learned how to better manage his frustration and anxiety. Warren also learned that actions speak louder than words. “When Warren made a mistake and promised to change his behavior, I would tell Warren ‘show me, don’t tell me,’” said George. “This allowed Warren to focus on the positive. We would just work on moving forward. The changes came a little bit every day. I left him alone, and he began to figure things out on his own more. I just let him blossom.”

Clarke feels strongly that Mr. George has been a critical part of Warren’s maturity. “I think he had one of the greatest impacts on Warren. I don’t think he would be where he is today without Mr. George,” she claimed. “The fact that he was his teacher for five years, you don’t get that type of relationship if you switch teachers every year.”

Both Clarke and George agree that one of Warren’s biggest strengths is his determination and motivation. “The interesting thing about Warren is he is very eager to be independent. When Warren really wants something, he is extremely passionate about it,” shared Clarke. “He really wants to get his driver’s license, so he passed the written test on the first try. He wants to learn to drive a car, and he’s going to - in his own time.” Mr. George, who accompanied Warren to take his driving test, claims that day to be one of his best memories of his five years with Warren – watching him work so hard for something, and then achieve it. Ever since he started high school, Warren wanted to be a chef or baker. “I stopped cooking for him the first year he was in Mr. George’s class,” Clarke stated. “I told him that if you want to eat, then you better learn how to cook. So we would go step by step on how to


“ACCESS is a family,” pronounced Clarke. “I have shared the worst moments of Warren’s life and the happiest moments of Warren’s life here, nowhere else. It’s just a part of our lives.” But another key to Warren’s success has been the advocates he has had at home all along. While Clarke was busy working with Warren every day, his older brother Townes was right there alongside him, even volunteering at ACCESS to learn more and help others. “The thing about having a sibling that is neurotypical is that it can go one of two ways…they either embrace the situation or resent it. Townes became educated

in disabilities, and now he is going into law school to study disability law. There is no way Townes would be the kind of person that he is - with integrity, humility and compassion - without Warren.” “The biggest obstacle we all faced with Warren is understanding that personal growth takes time, patience and consistency. Small victories build up to real change over time,” said George. “During the pandemic, I met with mom and Warren at their home. At that meeting, mom and I had a frank discussion about the possibility of Warren going to school in Dallas after graduation. It was a very emotional discussion, but we both agreed that Warren had grown enough to take advantage of this incredible opportunity. This moment really cemented how far Warren had traveled in his journey with autism.” And in June 2020, the day finally came. Warren graduated from the ACCESS Academy. Now, Warren is excelling in the next phase of his life at an independent community for adults with autism. He is learning the skills he needs to be on his own, taking courses at the local college, and continuing to grow into the adult he is so motivated to become. Letting Warren venture away was emotional for Clarke. “Honestly, I just want him to be happy. I want every opportunity that is available to him. I want both of my children to live their own, independent lives.” More than anything, Clarke is just proud of Warren for the journey he has traveled. “He brings so much joy. He just does. I think he is an exceptionally unique and amazing person. I’d hate to see the kind of person that I would have been without him. I tell both of my boys every day, it’s been an honor and a privilege being their mom.”

Finding Purpose Through Community Integration The ACCESS Experience Life has been absolutely “amazing and fantastic” since James Robinson joined the ACCESS family in 2020. James was traveling on life’s journey through changes in his home with his aging mother as his primary caregiver along with family issues amid the COVID-19 pandemic. It was a constant battle with family to maintain the care that James and his mother required. The ACCESS CES Medicaid Waiver Services team had compassion and accepted James and his team into ACCESS as family. Thanks to the services he has received through Waiver, James’s life has been wonderfully stable with the supports in place that he requires to meet his needs at the maximum level of independence. #TeamAccessIsTheBest -James Robinson, ACCESS Waiver Client along with Shalonda Stephens, Waiver Direct Support Professional

Realizing Potential Through ACCESS Adult Programs

Living More Life: Becky Carter Finds Joy with ACCESS Life By Ann Carter

Shortly after moving to Little Rock in 1995, we first met the wonderful folks at ACCESS. It’s hard to imagine where Becky would be without their support. From preschool to helping us successfully navigate public school, ACCESS has always been there. Even after high school graduation when Becky completed the Project SEARCH Arkansas: ACCESS Initiative Project SEARCH program and secured her first job, they were there every step of the way. When COVID-19 struck in early 2020, Becky was laid off from her beloved job at a local fitness center. Staying active in the community, sports, church and her job are the things that give Becky self-confidence, self-worth and happiness. With all her many activities shut down for months and safety being a concern, we were very worried about her well-being. It’s hard enough for Becky to have an empty calendar for one day, much less for several months! We knew this couldn’t continue long-term. So we called ACCESS, and they stepped up again. Becky started attending the ACCESS Life adult program, along with some of her friends.

Partnering with the Community

The ACCESS Life program includes a wide variety of activities and skill development that promote independence and a healthy, balanced lifestyle. Part of that includes promoting the importance of giving back to your community. The adults at ACCESS Life can be regularly found throughout Little Rock performing community service. The group has volunteered at the Arkansas Food Bank, just recently adopted an eight-block stretch of roadway near the ACCESS Academy and Young Adult campus, and looks forward to partnering with Fellowship Midtown Church on their upcoming clothes closet project to provide clothing for individuals and families in need.

Realizing Potential Through ACCESS Adult Programs Project SEARCH® Arkansas: ACCESS Initiative in partnership with Arkansas Rehabilitation Services


Making an Impact in the Workforce “Winston Churchill once said ‘Attitude is a little thing that makes a big difference,’ and I feel you see this in the Project SEARCH interns and graduates. Their positive attitudes, pay-it-forward mindset, and overall WANT to work sets them apart from so many. They say a pessimist sees difficulty in every opportunity, but Project SEARCH interns and graduates find the opportunity within their difficulties. They make a difference not only in their jobs but in their communities.” -Phillip Merry, Fort Smith, Arkansas Community Leader

"I have had the honor of hiring several graduates from Project SEARCH. As a business partner, I appreciate the work ethic instilled by the program. It is a pleasure to hire someone who comes to us not only with the hard skills we need, but the soft skills we desire.

Applications Now Open! Applications are now open for all seven Project SEARCH locations for the 2022-23 program year. Visit our website to learn more.


Many times, we think of what an impact we as employers are making on the lives of the individuals we hire from Project SEARCH. Honestly, the impact is on us! We gain an employee who aspires to be a productive member of our team. We gain an employee who is happy to come to work every day. We gain an employee who is dependable and motivated to do a great job. It is truly a win-win for the graduate and the employer." - Doreen Mattes, PHR, Director of Human Resources, City of Maumelle


Life After ACCESS

Max Fulks’s Journey to Success By Hannah Fulks

At our 18-month well-child appointment, Max’s expressive vocabulary consisted of two words. Out and Dog. His receptive vocabulary, what he could understand, was limitless. He could follow simple commands like, “put your shoes on”, “throw this away”, and “give Daddy a hug”. But if he had to verbalize it, it rarely happened. Instead of words, you’d get a grin. We were referred to a local place of therapy in Benton and given a diagnosis including low muscle tone and a speech delay. After four months of speech, our SLP came to us and explained she had seen virtually no improvement and she felt this was because Max had been diagnosed incorrectly. She was convinced our almost two year old had something called, “Childhood Apraxia of Speech.” I’ll remember her words forever.

Have you ever heard of ACCESS? It’s in Little Rock. They have people there that can help.

In the handful of days it took for us to be seen at ACCESS, I worried about everything. Would they realize how smart he was? Would they miss something? Would they really be able to diagnose him in sixty minutes? How could anyone know my non-verbal baby like I do? Those worries seem so silly now because I’m on the other side of it. They knew how smart he was. They didn’t miss a thing. They diagnosed him in a matter of minutes. And maybe most importantly, they did and do know Max Fulks like we know him. The night we received the official “global childhood apraxia of speech” diagnosis, I cried as I fell asleep. We finally knew. We finally had an answer for what was different about our son. We knew in our hearts it was something, but until we had this diagnosis, we had no plan. And without a plan, we were lost. As parents, we want our children to be typical. We want them to whisper secrets to their friends. We want them to say their nightly prayers. I even wanted him to argue with his big brother. And more than anything, I wanted to hear him say, “I love you, Mom.” When you’re told your child has a communication disorder, that speech


Life After ACCESS will be difficult, your entire world is rocked. Finding ACCESS, finding these therapists and teachers and friends who loved our Max into being, changed the entire course of his life. After three years of preschool and countless hours of speech, occupational, and physical therapy at ACCESS, our son began kindergarten at a public school in our hometown of Benton.


afternoon. They stand in front of the school and open car doors for their peers whose hands are full with lunchboxes, backpacks, and coats. His older brother paved the way a few years ago, and at the time, if I’m honest, I wasn’t sure Max would ever be

I see a kid who has had speech therapy for nine years (and counting) because of childhood apraxia of speech. So he can say, “Good Morning,” “Have a great afternoon,” and “Welcome to school.”

When I had the difficult meeting with Monika to let her know we wouldn’t be attending kindergarten at ACCESS, she and I made a promise to each other.

I see a kid who works out at a gym three nights a week to be strong enough to open and close those car doors. To hold umbrellas for the students when it’s raining.

She promised she would continue to check on him and wanted to be kept up to date on his progress not only in school, but also with his therapies. I promised I would bring him back to her, back to ACCESS, should I notice any drop off in his education or his speech. She promised me a spot for him should we need one.

I see teachers, therapists, support staff, and principals who have poured patience, consistency, love, and trust into Max. You know where the patience and consistency and love and trust began? At ACCESS.

I cried leaving the parking lot that afternoon. I cried because I was afraid of new things. I was afraid of sharing Max with the world. His sixyear old voice sounded different. Would they make fun of him? Would they understand him? Was I making a huge mistake?

Those educators and therapists were the first to teach our family that we can do hard things. I learned from them that when the tunnel seems dark, there is always a light. Sometimes it comes in the form of people, sometimes in the form of other students, and sometimes in the form of ourselves.

Four years later, I can look back and laugh. ACCESS prepared our little boy for that big, scary world in a way I didn’t know was possible. Max sailed through kindergarten, was reading at the top of his class by first grade. Second and third grade came and went and he was educationally and socially exactly where we would want him. This year, he’s in fourth grade. One of the perks of being the oldest at his elementary school is the chance to be a member of the safety patrol. Safety patrol assists all car riders in the morning and

But not me. I see a kid who had physical and occupational therapy for five years because of low muscle tone. So he can step off that curb and step back up. So he can grasp that door handle of the car. So he can button his safety vest.

Max knows his worth today because of those first people who loved him.

Yet, here we are.

If you have a kid who isn’t able to accomplish milestones on the typical schedule, a child who looks different, who sounds different, who walks different, who runs different, know this.

So many parents will drop their kids off this year and see that little boy and they won’t think a thing about it.

The path takes time and work and sweat and tears and a village. And there is no greater village than of the one we found at ACCESS.

able to do the same when he was that age.


Life After ACCESS As a baby, Drew’s struggles were always difficult to diagnose, the complicated one to figure out, and the one to defy the odds. He navigated public school, private school, recreational sports teams, and it wasn’t an easy road. Besides his family, Drew’s faithful sidekick has always been…ACCESS. Drew experienced a lot of “firsts” in his 32 years and most of them involved ACCESS. He was a member of the first ACCESS Academy class. There were six students in a threeroom “school.” With the help of a team of teachers and therapists, this is where Drew experienced his first independent academic success. Using the Association Method, he learned to read and write, and with each success came more confidence in himself.

Drew Aston: A Brighter Future Realized By Shannon Aston

Meet Drew, who by the way, uses Andrew as his “professional” name. He’s smart, focused, energetic, funny, and EMPLOYED! If you run into him at UAMS, he will probably be pushing a wheel chair or gurney with a big smile on his face or chatting about the Razorbacks and/or Cowboys with his co-workers. Drew has been with UAMS as a patient transporter and most recently as equipment manager for five years. What you don’t see is the invisible village that walks with him every day. The people who taught him to chew, to talk (by the way…he hasn’t stopped talking since), to read, to write, to understand social cues, to navigate the city bus system, to help him become the best he can be, and the list goes on and on.


In a sense, Drew and ACCESS Academy grew up together. As the program flourished, so did Drew and his classmates. With the addition of the ACCESS Gators, Drew learned leadership skills, how to be a team player, how to navigate the highs and lows of winning and losing, and how loud his parents could scream at track meets. Sometimes being on the autism spectrum, along with developmental apraxia of speech and learning disabilities, flat got in his way! But his trust in his coaches (ACCESS teachers and therapists) enabled Drew to make mistakes and be redirected without making him feel anything less than “typical.” Not only did Drew get support as he navigated the world, his family also benefitted from all ACCESS had to offer. His younger brother, Ryan, attended sibling classes with other students’ brothers and sisters. This gave him the opportunity to speak freely with peers with similar circumstances under the guidance of a trained therapist. His parents gained life-long friends and had resources to help them with all of the extras that come with raising a child with disabilities. Drew had a graduating class of…one. The gym was filled with people who had been part of his village in

one way or another. Drew stood to make his speech, and as he started speaking, his speech therapist realized he had gone rogue. The words weren’t the same as the ones she helped him write and practice. After an initial panic moment, what transpired was everything that ACCESS had prepared him for and more. That evening Drew pointed to different people in attendance and told stories about the relationship he had with each one. What a night to experience, but what the future held at that point was anyone’s guess. Finding jobs for young adults with a disability and limited transportation options was no easy task. Enter ACCESS and Project SEARCH just in time. Drew’s life would take a turn in a very good way. He interviewed for the program and was accepted as a member of the first Project SEARCH Arkansas: ACCESS Initiative class! Project SEARCH taught Drew so much about skills needed to be successful in the workforce. Part of the curriculum included serving as interns in several different areas of the hospital… including patient transportation. When Crothall at UAMS called with a full-time offer, Drew and the Project SEARCH team literally screamed out loud and jumped up and down. This is a known fact because Drew did a reenactment each time he told the story! Drew is still at UAMS full-time and even has the opportunity to train other Project SEARCH interns in his own department. So if you are ever lost at UAMS and you see a tall, blonde, young man with a big smile pushing a wheelchair, stop him and introduce yourself. Drew will get you where you need to be. If you mention ACCESS, you’re in for treat!

"I love seeing our children light up as they work with the students and staff at ACCESS. Many of the students talk about the experience and the kids they worked with for years to come!" -Christy Nipper, Little Rock Christian Academy JTerm Coordinator

Little Rock Christian Academy participated in their annual JTerm program, serving our ACCESS students virtually due to COVID-19 restrictions.

-Josh Clark, Midtown Student Pastor

Our neighbors at Fellowship Midtown have become true community partners, encouraging their members to invest their time and efforts in helping with a variety of projects at our Academy and Young Adult campus.

"What an honor it was to be blessed with the opportunity from Janssen to live out our credo by putting others first. Almost every individual in the Janssen family can relate to a friend or loved one whom has a disability. Our joint volunteer day at ACCESS not only united us as an organization but bonded us as community in a shared cause. Thank you to the ACCESS team for allowing us into your family to walk out our credo and impact lives." - Dana Venable, Janssen Global

Mount St. Mary Academy’s Junior Service Learning program is ACCESS’s longest running volunteer partnership, and their exemplary work with our Early Childhood program will be honored and recognized at the 2021 Association of Fundraising Professionals, Arkansas Chapter’s National Philanthropy Day on November 18th.

"Our students learn that there is so much more to life than their own immediate needs and set aside time to put other people before themselves. At Mount St. Mary, we believe that everyone deserves to be treated with dignity and respect. Year after year, the girls we send to ACCESS love the time and experience they have there and discover their passions through service. We have had a number of girls decide after volunteering there that they want to be a speech therapist or work with children in some capacity. We treasure our relationship with ACCESS because we know how they help change lives for the better, not only in their students but in ours also.” - Lauren Lawrence, Mount St. Mary Academy Junior Service Learning Program Coordinator 25

Giving Through Love: The WORTH Scholarship By Liz Morris The love language between a child and a parent can be shown in many ways like a hug and kiss, a present wrapped in a bow or the words “I Love You.” But after the passing of their son in August 2016 due to complications post-open heart surgery, Liz and Trey Morris, along with their family, had to find new ways to express their love for their late son, grandson, and nephew, Walter L. Morris, IV - “Walt.” Working alongside the Arkansas Community Foundation (ARCF), the creation of the Warriors For Walt Charitable Fund was born to grant monies to nonprofits creating awareness, inclusion, and opportunity for individuals with special needs and giving hope to families suffering the loss of their child. ACCESS is one of the nonprofits that has received grants from The Warriors For Walt Charitable Fund. ACCESS holds a very special place in the hearts of Liz and Trey Morris. In November 2015, Walt was diagnosed at birth with Down syndrome and a congenital heart defect. When touring schools for Walt before his scheduled open-heart surgery, the Morris family entered the doors of ACCESS and felt at home. Liz and Trey knew the mission of ACCESS would have laid a firm foundation for Walt’s education and created a space for him to learn the life skills he would have needed to gain independence and have self-worth. In November 2020, The Butterfly Garden at the ACCESS Academy was dedicated in memory of Walt, and the ACCESS staff set aside time for Walt’s family and friends to tour the campus. Impressed at the variety of programs at the ACCESS Academy, Walt’s paternal grandparents felt compelled to show their love for their late grandson through a new kind of support for ACCESS. With Walt’s “JayJay and Wally” wanting to nurture their own love language with their angel grandson, Jayne and Walter Morris, Jr. worked with Liz and Trey to found The WORTH Scholarship - Worthy Of Reaching Tremendous Heights - which provides financial assistance to students who have the “I Can, I Will” attitude to succeed. $10,000 has been granted to ACCESS from the Jayne and Walter Morris Charitable Fund through ARCF to alleviate the financial burden for students who need the resources from ACCESS Academy to thrive and achieve independence. The Morris family invites you to cultivate and nurture your own love language for a special someone or notable purpose by giving back to ACCESS so that every student is able have WORTH.
