Sophie Ragan was recognized as EDM volunteer of the year for her outstanding educational advocacy for an 8-year-old boy who had had not been enrolled in school yet and was non-verbal. He had obvious special needs that were not being addressed when he was enrolled in school and was isolated from his peers. She quickly got to work, got him appropriately evaluated and diagnosised so that he could have an IEP that would meet his needs. Her advocacy ultimately led to him being enrolled in a private academic school where he is educated with his peers and getting all the needed supports. He is talking now and thriving.
