"As a mother of a non-verbal autistic 9 year old, I have been clueless, scared, overwhelmed, defeated, manipulated and made to feel my son's needs are not as important as other disabled children. Even with a master's degree and career as a case manager I was lost navigating this system. Over time I did my research, obtained the best support team, made the school, school board, teachers and other professionals know that I am a "Mama Bear." I will fight for Kellan's needs to be met and follow closely to assure his IEP, sensory needs and communication assistance is taken care of. The only reason I am confident in saying this is due to Zane's, the amazing Board and Stacy (my Angel). Through Zane's assistance, Kellan has been able to participate in O/T and speech when our insurance wouldn't pay, which pushed Kellan to work hard and progress. It's not only about the help. It's about the never-ending help, comfort, advice, love and acceptance that allows us to feel at home. Thank you Zane's!

“Zane’s has supported our family on three occasions. We are forever grateful!”
“Thank you so much for all of your help. This is one of the first times I truly felt heard and understood when trying to find help for my son.”
“My experience with Zane's has been really smooth and easy. They provide a lot of useful information to parents and caregivers of people with developmental issues. Whenever I've needed anything I've reached out either to them or Stacy and they've always been willing to listen and provide guidance and support. They have so much information and resources and they're very knowledgeable on a large number of subjects. It's just helpful to have a resource in the community that can provide information and lend support to families and help you along the journey."
"The application process was very simple, and the members were on top of deadlines to make certain that we had all the information that was needed. During my process, I had to reach out by email and no matter how simple or complex Zane's would respond and make me at ease with answering my questions. Our family would like to thank Zane's Foundation for the music lessons. Our son loves music and he looks forward to going. He is now asking to play the drums at music!"
"Great experience!! You guys do a great job!"
"Stacy helped us tremendously with suggesting resources and other places to also look to help with our son. A wealth of knowledge in what is and can be a very unknown path for people. I cannot say enough good things about Zane's Inc."
"Stacy was very knowledgeable about other resources that we could look into and was very supportive throughout the entire process! Thank you so much for all your help!"
"Everything was easy and efficient. I was kept in the loop throughout the whole process and Zane's was extremely helpful!"
"Major really appreciates Zane's Inc. Stay encouraged - God will continue to provide for his kids."

"At this time as our family is preparing to attend the JFA family retreat and we would like to thank Zane's Inc. for helping us out with financial assistance to cover the expenses of this retreat. This will be an amazing week for our family, and especially for our daughter! Thank you so much!"
"We are so very grateful for the funding for speech for our son. It gives us such relief to know that's something we don't need to worry about. You are an amazing organization and we are so blessed for finding you! Thanks again!"
"We wanted to thank you so much for your support in giving our son the opportunity to attend Camp-Can-Do this summer. As a kid who thrives on routine and keeping busy, it was valuable to us to have him in camp and given weeks worth of great fun, learning, and socialising with peers. You gave us all a true gift with him spending his summer at camp, so thank you so much for your support!"
"Zanes Inc has been present in my family’s life for over a year. Zanes is beyond anything I have ever expected. From an amazing, very dedicated, knowledgeable, and dedicated staff to fun events and resources, Zanes always is there for us-even during very challenging IEP time. The help I was able to receive with IEP meeting gave me moral and educational support I needed. I can’t thank enough the Zanes... can’t wait to resume the monthly meetings because there is always so much more to learn. Thank you Zanes!"
"Thank you for everything you've done for our family!"
"Thank you for everything you've done for our family!"
"From the bottom of our hearts our family thanks you for the opportunity you have provided for our family. Our son has responded wonderfully to ABA therapy.He has become so much more independent and regulated. He is potty trained, gets dressed by himself and expresses his emotions BEFORE he goes into a full meltdown! ABA helps him at home while his other therapies help him at school."
"Meeting this group and working with them this year has been a very helpful and wonderful experience. Looking forward to a long future relationship."
"We couldn’t be more thankful for Zane’s and the funding we received for our son’s speech therapy. Being a middle-class family, we typically don’t qualify for financial help. Due to other financial obligations, we worried about how we were going to add the weekly expense of speech therapy to the budget. With the funding we received, we no longer worry about it. This money allows us to better afford other therapy costs for him."
"I could not be more appreciative of this opportunity for my son. The funding we have been given for the last 2 years for occupational therapy services has helped him learn more about his sensory needs and how he can control them. As a parent, I am learning so many techniques and skills to assist him. We are constantly changing his sensory diet. With his insurance not willing to pay, Zane’s has given him this opportunity to obtain some self-control and focus when we are in the public, school and at home."
