Help Us Help Our Nevada Students and Families Impacted by Autism

Your Donation Will Make A Difference and Help Our Students Reach Their Full Potential

The latest statistics are showing the autism diagnosis rate of 1 in 55 compared to 1 in 80 just a few short years ago.  Newton Learning Center Northern Nevada is a small non-profit school that provides academic and social supports for K-12 students on the upper end of the autism spectrum.  We are the only K-12 school of our kind in the state of Nevada and do not receive any federal or state funds to provide services for this growing population.

In spite of the dedicated familes, teachers, and staff, today’s tough economic conditions for our local families makes it difficult for us to provide our services without help from people and businesses like you.  Your donation will help us raise some much needed funds that will directly benefit the deserving students of the Newton Learning Center and help us make a difference in the lives of families with autism spectrum disorders.

Second Start Learning Disabilities Programs DBA:  Newton Learning Center Northern Nevada is recognized as a tax-exempt organization under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.  Donations made to organizations with 501(c)(3) status may be tax deductible. 

Your donation will go directly toward helping Nevada students and families in the classroom, with tuition assistance, and community program offerings.  Some examples of this are shown in the images and testimonials included on this page.  If you would like additional information or to tour our school please contact Rebecca “RJ” Larrieu, School Director at rebeccaj@secondstart.org or at (775) 358-0808.
