Review for Break Through Inc., Rapid City, SD, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I met Ben about 30 years ago when I began teaching. We had Special Education in common. He with disabilities and I facing day to day teaching of regular 5th graders who needed more understanding for disabled children in our class, school and community. Ben was gracious to come to my classroom each year and talk to my students about the struggles he had in school. He answered any question they had about disabilities and his disability. He won them over with his wit and frank talk. He gave the students ideas for helping, connecting and seeing each other as equals. I still hear from students who remember "Benny" and his message of Good Will.
