I just got back from a routine doctor’s appointment for Nick. He completely enjoyed imitating the coughing and throat clearing sounds the gentlemen next to us in the waiting room. Since the morning has dwindled away, I am opting to give you and update on Nick’s world instead of pulling something out of my noggin to write. Nick is 21 years old and has Down syndrome and autism. Here’s a little slice of his world and what he’s been up to (besides imitating others hacking and sneezing)………
Nick attends a post-secondary transition program called STEPS. His days are full with work jobs, occupational and speech therapy, cooking, community trips and other school related activities. A big thank you to Jodi, who took many of these pictures of Nick’s world.
Nick helps to make ice packs which he delivers to the schools in our district….
Ding dong, ding dong, ding dong, guess who’s here?
Community trip bowling…..
Sensory break time at school……
Dinner with his buddies at Ci Ci’s Pizza……
Visit to WVHS Wrestling Team venue, he had to try on the headgear 🙂
Nick dancing in Miss R’s (respite worker) boots….
Nick the “winter ninja” relaxing at home…..
As you can see, Nick has a very full life which he enjoys every day. I have to thank his respite workers for taking such good care of him and getting him out into the community. That’s a slice of Nick’s world and what’s in my noggin this week! 🙂
