Eric is now 11 years old and we have all the questions and issues all parents do when it comes to keeping their child safe and how school is going to go. Eric is in 5th grade at our local Elementary school and is doing well. He is still mostly nonverbal which makes it very hard to know what he needs. With the help of his Speech Therapist and the School District, Eric now has a tablet that works as his voice. With this he can ask questions, answer questions, and let us know what he wants!
If we can help others families with their questions & problems, then the DSSSV is a success!
We would welcome the opportunity to find local families and individuals who know someone with Down Syndrome. Bringing awareness of how awesome kids are with Down Syndrome and how they love to be included in EVERY event is also very important to us. If only we could all see the world the way they do, it would be a better place!
