Today Charlie’s teacher (special instructor) was telling me about a little girl that she worked with about seventeen years ago and who she recently saw at a wedding. The little girl, I’ll call her Anne, is seventeen years old and has been diagnosed as having cerebral palsy effecting all four limbs. She uses a power chair to get around and uses an augmentative communication device to converse with others. She’s also on the A/B honor roll and in all regular education classes.
I’m sure there’s not a parent in the world who wants their child to be in power chair and using augmentative communication–that’s never the first choice. It is nice to know, however, that with these limitations she’s still figuring out how to be successful.
Give you hope, right?
