Meet my youngest, he's eight years old and in second grade. He loves to play dodgeball with his "special" PE teacher. He is Autistic and knows what time he is supposed to play and on what day of the week. If something happens to that routine, he cannot function. He will just keep repeating that he is supposed to be playing dodgeball. He is absolutely adorable. When the routine is changed for whatever reason, we let mom know and she will draw a circle outside on their driveway and play dodgeball with him. His personality is wonderful and he is very kind and considerate. He just really has a hard time with change.
My older kids are funny little guys.
They crack me up all the time. One of them cracks jokes with the straightest of faces and never even laughs when everyone else is. He is very matter of fact and will say things that might seem sarcastic to some but they are just factual to him. He is very quiet most of the time and is also very bright. He works well one on one but can be independent.
My girls are just plain sweet! One has CP.
My 3rd through 6th grade special needs students will discover light and sound as forms of energy and how to use them in practical application.
This is a rare opportunity for us to take methods that they learn in the classroom, including predictions and reasoning (deductive and mathematical) to see if the kids can transfer the knowledge to real life experiences.
This could possibly be an experience they carry with them for life.
The funds provided will help feed the children throughout the day so that they don’t have to carry food around with them all day long. Thank you
