Katie's Story

"CECO'S programs are important because they are able to help Katie in a way that therapy is not.  Their holistic approach to helping children is amazing!" - Annie, Katie's Mom

How long has Katie been coming to CECO?
Katie has attended CECO programs for the last three years.

What is one of your family's biggest accomplishments?
The biggest accomplishment for our family by far is Katie walking; hands down, walking!

If Katie was a superhero, which one would she be?
Wonder Woman, because she is strong willed and determined to do her own thing.  She also loves to prove that she can do it on her own.

What are some of the challenges you face as a mom of a child with special needs?
Not being able to understand what she wants.  We are lucky that Katie is able to know what she wants, she is just unable to effectively communicate it to us.  It is something she is working on, though, with the help of CECO!

Why are CECO's programs important to your family? 
CECO'S programs are important because they are able to help Katie in a way that therapy is not.  Their holistic approach to helping children is amazing!

Why is it important that the person reading your story donate to CECO's Superheroes?
CECO is a wonderful school that I know a lot of kids could benefit from.  Because they are a private school, it is hard to get funding for the equipment that is necessary to give kids like Katie the chance to learn how to live as normal a life as they can.  

Your gift makes a difference. Thank you!
