Back to PAC!

After a 2 week break, Matthew is back at PAC (= preschool autism class). In his class, there are 6 students ages 2-5, one teacher, and 2 aides. Matthew, Heather, and Simon are returning students and the other 3 are new to the class (although one was in PAC at another school last year). Matthew was supposed to change schools this Fall but they "redid the boundaries" so he is staying where he is...which is good b/c he avoids the transition. Here is a picture of Matthew with his teacher, Miss Heather and his only female classmate (little) Heather. They attend 27 hours per week.

I'm glad you guys have a specific preschool for kids who suffer from autism! When I read your post and saw the picture, I smiled because NBear was (for the longest time) the only girl in her preschool and elementary classes as well.

Good luck! I am glad he got to stay where he is comfortable. Keep us updated!!

It still doesn't seem right that Peter isn't with Matthew & Heather any longer! Even though Peter has moved on to the next step upward, we know how blessed he (we) have been to have shared our kid's days together at ICES. Time for Matthew & Heather to be the "Big Man/Woman On Campus" this year!

See you soon,

David
