There is this wonderful program called e-Soccer that just started up. The “e” stands for exceptional. It’s for those children who have exceptional needs and that are exceptional peers. The teams are made up of 5 children with needs and 5 children peers. The best part is that the coaches are all special ed teachers or therapists that know how to deal with children who need a little extra patients and love.
Today we got to meet our coaches and get our team t-shirts. The kids were so excited and can hardly wait for their first practice!
After we met with the coaches we spent a few minutes playing on the playground. It took quite a while before Jacob would go down the slide by himself. And even then it was the little baby slide, but I’ll take what I can get. It’s a step up from what he usually does. And he’s skipping!!!
