Who We Are

Lyn Major, Administrator & Founder

‘In 1994, my husband and I adopted twin boys who were then 3 years
old. We soon discovered that they had severe developmental delays
and would require special education. Upon investigation we realized
that no special needs program was available on Abaco. Working with
Reverend Stan Kolasa of St. Francis De Sales Church and Dr. S.
Kossack of Florida International University, and with the support of
generous donors and other families with children who have similar
needs, “Every Child Counts” was born.’
