On the slide at age 13


In the past few weeks, my son has been able to use the playground slide (with a ‘spot’) for the first time. He is 13 1/2 years old.  Also, his residential school placement through their outdoor and gym program has been able to get him harnessed up and starting to use the climbing wall.  That is extremely impressive and I am so proud of him and for him.  And thankful to the school staff!

For parents of typically developing kids, let me just clarify.  This is a big freakin’ deal!

Best to all,
