I recently spoke with Dr. Samir about how wonderful Liam is doing, and wanted to update you all. Without your hard work and support, I truly believe my son would have languished or become worse.
He is now fully included in a public school here in Oregon with his peers. He receives pull-out support in his academics. Next year, he will be receiving his academics with his peers with the support of a small group and assistant. He will be pulled out for extra support. He has reached all his academic goals and is at grade level in all areas, with the exception of fine motor writing. He will enter the 4th grade next year.
He participates in extra curricular activities: swimming, Tae Kwon Do, and gymnastics. He loves Legos, dinosaurs, the Pink Panther, and of course, his hero, Indiana Jones. He wants to be an archaeologist some day. This week he is in an intensive Lego Robotics camp with peers his own age.
He no longer cries himself to sleep at night, nor has nightmares about incidents of the past. He is happy and talks about wanting to college because he believes he is a “smart boy, and that’s what smart people do”.
Words cannot express how grateful I am to have found you all and for what you did for my son. I do believe your work saved a little boy.
Bless you and thank you,
