May 1994


This daily correspondence between schools she attended and us gives you a glimpse of our daily life. Most parents of typical children do not communicate on daily basis with the teachers. This gives a reader an insight to how important daily communication is for a child with autism.

Kat has attended school since she was 3 years old. These are school notes that were result of correspondence with her parents and her teachers. We have made comments at a later date reflecting back on the impact of these events. Kats School Notes Index

* Observe new therapists

May 6, 1994

Dear Parents,

Happy Spring! With the season change we have some staff changes as well. Due to the success of the addition of Rowan College practicum students, we have been able to hire an assistant until the end of the school year. S.R. is starting this Monday and will be here 30 hrs. per week to help maintain our increased language drill pace. D.F. will remain for 10 hrs. N., J., and K. are still on board providing quality programming.

S.K. will be our new speech therapist in S1.'s absence. New schedules reflecting time changes will be sent home shortly.

Thank you,

Ka. & C.
