ALC Gives 2019 Inclusion Award to Johnny Stivers and Stivers Decatur Subaru
The Adaptive Learning Center (ALC) Inclusion Award was created to recognize individuals and organizations that have gone above and beyond supporting the Metro Atlanta Community with contributions and efforts to create an environment of inclusion for those individuals experiencing challenges or stressful environments. This award is not given out every year but is decided through a committee on an individual basis.
ALC supports children with special needs in typical preschool classrooms so they can learn alongside their typically developing peers. ALC places a special-ed teacher with the child in the typical classroom to make the program successful. This is revolutionary! It not only helps the children with challenges because they are being mentored by their typically developing peers and this also impacts the typically developing children by helping them experience differences in each other and develop empathy, acceptance and compassion for others.
This year we recognize Johnny Stivers and the entire team of Stivers Decatur Subaru for their commitment to the Atlanta Community with a spirit of acceptance and inclusion. Stivers has dedicated his dealership to supporting ALC with the “Share the Love” campaign over the last 5 years. Because of this dedication there have been thousands of people impacted. Specifically over the last 5 years ALC has provided educational support to 197 children with behavioral challenges and special needs in 146 inclusive preschool classrooms throughout the metro Atlanta area. ALC has also been able to train 292 classroom teachers how to integrate children with special needs into their classrooms supporting 2,335 students. Congratulations to Johnny Stivers and the entire Stivers Decatur Subaru sales team on receiving the 2019 ALC Inclusion Award.
