Julia is an honors student and also loves to dance; her family credits the Nation's Special Needs Assistance Program as part of the reason she’s able to attend her dance classes, which truly enhances her life. The program reimburses up to $500 per year for families to spend on extracurricular activities for individuals with special needs. For more information about the program, visit
