After first meeting Congressman Steve Israel earlier this month at Jack’s Run, we were pleased to have him visit the Martin C. Barell School last week.

He had a tour of the building and he met some of our students and staff, and got to see classes and programs in action. He also got to meet Tyler of BirthdayBack.




The Congressman seemed quite impressed with young Tyler and he promised to talk about his organization when he next spoke on the floor of Congress. True to his word, he did that very thing! (click image below to see video)

When Tyler told the Congressman about his BirthdayBack organization, Israel shared with Tyler that his birthday was May 30 – today! So, Happy Birthday to you, Congressman Israel, from your friends at NSSA. We very much appreciate the support you’ve shown for Autism Awareness and for NSSA.
