Gage’s Sensory Room

Gage, with low-functioning autism, is non-verbal and has difficulty focusing his eyes. Gage loves all things sensory: toys to stack and build with, running and climbing, and any water-related activity. Gage was excited to receive a sensory room for his dream. He loves having many things to see and touch, and his mom thinks this will benefit him greatly.  Thank you, Sunshine Foundation donors, for making Gage’s dream come true!

Family Thank You

“Gage really enjoys his sensory room items. He loves that he has his own room now with his own toys that he can go to and read or watch his favorite movie on TV. Gage is growing more every day, although he is still non-verbal. I feel like his speech will come soon.” – Gage’s mom, Lisa

Gage’s Diagnosis

Gage has been diagnosed with low-functioning autism. Autism Spectrum Disorder is defined by the CDC as “a developmental disability caused by differences in the brain.” Autism affects each person differently, and their ability to function can vary significantly. Low-functioning autism is a term used to define children and adults with the most severe form of Autism Spectrum Disorder.


Gage’s wish was answered by generous Adopt a Dream donors, thank you!
