Last week, Chad, Grace, and I toured The Little Light House. TLLH is a developmental center for children with special needs. Children that go there have special needs like cerebral palsy, Down syndrome, hydrocephaly, autism, etc. Currently, they have three classes with eight children in each class. Last year, they had 10 graduates!
Grace has been on TLLH waiting list since February when our PT suggested it. To be honest, I learned about TLLH while I was in the hospital after having Grace, but at that time, we didn't really know what Grace's future needs would be. In February, Grace was number 33 on the waiting list. I called the week before last to schedule our tour since they recently moved. The director Carrie said, "Let me check and see where Grace is on the waiting list," and she started counting, "one, two, three...," and she got to the number seven. Grace is NUMBER 7 on the waiting list!!! I was expecting to maybe be in the 20s.
What does this mean? Well, it means that there is a very good possibility that Grace will be a student at TLLH next August! We just need them to graduate 7 this year, which they probably will. I cannot tell you how excited I am for Grace to attend TLLH!
"The Little Light House offers a tuition-free early intervention program
for children birth to six years consisting of intensive therapeutic care
and cognitive remediation. Addressing a child’s physical ability,
wellness, mind, and community, our year-round program promotes
systematic, long-term, healthy change. A Bible-based curriculum
specifically designed for children with special needs is the foundation
for our classroom structure. Working alongside parents, our staff
members develop individual education plans with measurable goals for
each child. School sessions are held Monday through Thursday, from
8:30am to 1:30pm."
Doesn't that sound AWESOME??!! Please join with us in prayer that Grace will be a student at TLLH next year!
