James Otis School in Chicago is an elementary school of over 600 students. I work in a special education resource room with children who are blind or have low vision. Students with visual disabilities need extracurricular activities as much as they need academic instruction. My seven students, who are preteens and young teens, are developing important social skills which do not come as easily as they may to others. Most of them come from families who are not able, for various reasons, to take them to restaurants where they can practice proper etiquette and just plain have fun. I would like to take them to Ed Debevic's Restaurant on Wells St. in Chicago. Ed's is a throwback to a 1950's diner with a fun atmosphere. We have been learning to read and understand the menu and its pricing. The students have written their ideal lunch and have learned to calculate the amount along with tax and tip. We will practice travel skills on the CTA bus. Once at the restaurant, each student will place an order, use correct manners and interact with peers. I would appreciate a donation since my students are not financially able to cover such a field trip. The donation would cover the cost of the total bill, tax and gratuity. This experience will be one that they will remember for years to come and will be a building block in their development.
