Ethel's Tree of Life has been a prominent part of my son's life for the past 3 years. Originally, I thought it would be a great social outlet for him as he has autism and his social skills are at a much lower level than his peers...I was wrong!!!! ETL is a group of peers who support and learn with and from each other under the guidance of some spectacular volunteers and one incredibly dedicated lady. The 8-week modules are broken down so that these students with disabilities can learn from the very basic to the finished product in genres such as food/nutrition, job search/career paths, as well as finding your way around a city and trying new things. When these students get together, they smile more, communicate better, and become a participatory part of our society.
