I am on FIRE!

Monday we got some very sad news.  MyGym is closing.  Will has attended a weekly class there for five years.  I’m very sad because there really isn’t much available for children with severe needs.  I left a voicemail on Monday for the Youth and Family Director at the Y about creating a class for kids with special needs.  I talked to her and the Executive director today about the class and they’re interested.  Then I called the Autism Alliance and they’re willing to help.  So, I’m hopeful.  But I want more than just one class; so, I also called the person who runs all the music classes at the Y and asked her to have a class specifically for children on the spectrum.  We are meeting next week to discuss it.  I’m pretty sure that the music class will work out.

And since I was on a roll I called a go-getting friend and asked if she would help me start a community center for adults with autism.  We’re going to start touring existing facilities after summer vacation.

Marcy – I volunteered you to help.  Thanks.
