As Becky Jackson on Glee, Lauren Potter is an inspiration to a new generation of kids, with and without intellectual disabilities . The show has given her a platform to do so many wonderful things, like go to awards shows, do outreach for charities and even be appointed to the President's Committee for People with Intellectual Disabilities. Currently, she is working in conjunction with a program called iPads For Autism, with a goal to get 23 iPads to The Carolyn E. Wiley Center, which offers programs to Autistic youth.
