"Without CECO, our family firmly believes that Chandler would not be as strong as he is today. " - Shelly, Chandler's Mom
Why Is CECO Important for Chandler?
Without CECO, our family firmly believes that Chandler would not be as strong as he is today. Without this strength, both mentally and physically, he likely would have succumbed to seizures years ago. There is no other program that incorporates every part of him, helping him be the best he can be - and doing it with a smile on his face every day!
What Are Some of Chandler's Daily Challenges?
CECO has always provided an environment where Chandler feels safe, loved, respected and celebrated! Because of his seizures, his program has to be adapted constantly, almost daily. The loving staff know how to work around his seizures, gently encouraging him to push forward. They help him get the best out of his day.
How Has Chandler Surprised You?
I don't know too many kids that when asked, "Are you ready to go to school?" scream with excitement, but mine does - and it wakes up the whole house!
Which Superhero Would Chandler Be, and Why?
Superman, for sure! Seizures are his kryptonite. He battles with them every single day, but manages to stay strong and fight through them!
