Feeling Proud

“Feeling proud isn’t something these guys get to feel a lot,” said the teacher of this 1st-3rd grade class from Somerville Public Schools. “All of my students are on the autism spectrum. They’re constantly being told what to do and what not to do. It’s rare that they get to accomplish something challenging like this!” The experiential education model was in full affect at the Middlesex Fells this Wednesday. One student in particular climbed like he was set free! That afternoon after her son got home and something was very different about him, Julian’s mom called Waypoint asking for when he could climb with us next.
