Social Skills

This fall Surrey Place received millions of dollars in funding to expand services to kids who have moderate to mild autism.  Charlie now qualifies to attend this excellent facility!!  He's in a social skills group with 6 other boys his age (4-6) who are higher functioning.  He loves this class.  They have a marble run and trains, and other boys who share the same interest.  He asks to go everyday!  We are thrilled that this service came along at the right time.  They also offer classes on advanced social skills (how to deal with bullying) and also daily life skills (handling money).

Dan, Clara and I enjoyed a dinner out while Charlie was in class. This will be the closest we get to a 'date' for now.
