GREENWICH, Conn. — Like many parents, New Canaan father of three Dennis W. Perry became involved in his children's education by joining the school board. He did the same when his son, Ross, now 25, became a client of the Abilis organization in Greenwich.

Abilis, pronounced ABLE-ISS, provides services for 700 children and adults with developmental disabilities every year. "Ross was born in Hong Kong, where we were living at the time," Perry began an interview. "Born well, Ross’ disability occurred as a result of his contracting bacterial meningitis at 10 weeks, which led to our learning about the world of disabilities and the value of early intervention," Perry said.
