New School Visit!
Well I was impressed!! This school is amazing especially for a public school. I knew we lived in a great town but I never expected the school to look the way it did and have everything a disabled child would need. I had my hopes up and they were surpassed. The school was completely renovated and reconstructed. They have seperate OT and speech classrooms along with a large sensory and PT room. He will only be in the all inclusive for around 3 hours a day. He will be with typical 1st grades for science, social studies and everything such as music, art, gym... I am very excited for him to start in this school. His new teacher is young and energetic. They have computers in the room and one is a touch screen. Brendan already tried that out as soon as he saw it. The have a handicap accessible bathroom off their classroom and access to the playground. It is designed very well and I am excited for him to be with typical peers more because that is what he needs. He went to visit the typical 1st grade classroom and everyone stared since he wheeled himself in but they all said hello and smiled. One boy said "that's a wheelchair" and a few children walked up to him and talked to him. I think he will fit in just fine! He was shy but soon he will show them his personality and everyone will love him as everyone always does.
