Jennifer's Caregiver Story

Jennifer's Caregiver Story

Having a special needs child is overwhelming at times, especially more so when change is required. This past Fall, when my son was eligible to start JK, I was SCARED. Little Connor is in a wheelchair, and doesn't speak, nor eat/chew food, still uses a baby bottle to drink from - how could anybody else understand him? When we met his Educational Assistant, I was still very nervous. As I had the opportunity to watch my son go from crying when he knew where we were going, to wheeling himself through the school doors - I knew the right decision had been made, sharing him, giving him independence, growing his little personality. He is starting to pull himself up to stand, he is more vocal, and his gains have been huge. I fully believe that because he has the right EA, a lady with a heart of gold, a brain of steel and is just downright wonderful, he is loving school and making huge leaps. Thank you so much, Mrs. Wainman. You are the face of a caregiver.
