Last summer, I worked at special school district alongside children with high-functioning autism for my senior project. Yesterday, I went back to visit the kids with my mom who works there! We brought our dog because the kids love her, and I had a great time playing with the kids.
One of the girls, Piper, has high-functioning autism and tics/Tourette Syndrome, so it was great to connect with her! It got me even more excited about being a counselor at Camp Twitch and Shout this summer! :)
P.S. … Shout-out to my friend Shayna, who will also be a counselor at Camp Twitch and Shout this summer! Shayna: I still am jealous of your awesome tics, and I promise you I will get used to them. :)
