As part of Jewish Disability Awareness Month, Meyer Academy student Benji Gans shared his personal journey with Autism to middle school students during a special assembly on Monday, February 8.

Benji is continuously overcoming the challenges of autism through therapy, both traditional and alternative, a lot of perseverance and love from his family. This was his first official speaking engagement, although he plans to speak at other schools to increase awareness.
