When you have a kid with special needs – in my case, autism – finding the
best appropriate school is absolutely critical.
Norrin’s kindergarten year was pretty tough. It wasn’t the right fit. The teacher gave up on my son the very first day of school. And in a class of six children, not once – in the entire school year – Norrin was never the student of the month. Norrin cried almost every single morning, begging not to go to school. But as a working mom, I had no choice.
I am so incredibly lucky that I was able to pull Norrin out that school. Now he’s in a really special place – it’s so much more than just a school. It’s his home away from away. We love the staff and the staff loves Norrin.
I think it’s why, I especially enjoyed celebrating School Spirit Week.

How does your child’s school celebrate Spirit Week? Do you go all out? I’d love some ideas to plan for next year!
