My sweet, music-loving son has a variety of "different-abilities". He suffered a stroke shortly prior to birth - and communication and mobility are challenges for him. My husband and I decided he wasn't quite ready for Kindergarten, so we toured a variety of local preschools. Upon sitting in and observing Ms. Linda's and Ms. Amy's class at St. Stephen's just once, we knew that was where we wanted our son to go. Then we brought our son to St. Stephen's to see how he would respond to the teachers and other children, and we knew he was where he belonged. His teachers, Ms. Linda and Ms. Amy, included him in all that he would tolerate - and with their patience and guidance, he began to participate more and more. The children accepted and interacted with our son - and, in time, he learned to accept and interact with them. St. Stephen's is a school full of love and learning and acceptance, and we count our lucky stars that our son was taught there. My husband says our son has the heart of a champion - and that coupled with the lessons he has learned from Ms. Linda and Ms. Amy, shall take him far.
