Francis, who attended the Santiago Deaf School, is learning more and more signs every day. we are trying to keep up with him so we learn to communicate with him in signs as well! Estefani, who was included into first grade this past year at Concordia Lutheran School, has learned how to read and write. Junior has made progress in his fine-motor skills in writing, and is improving his cognitive processes. Moises was included into the pre-school class in January for 3 hours a day and had a successful socialization semester.
The teachers, school children, parents, and community members have fully supported the inclusion of the children into the school. We know that in the future the children of Concordia Lutheran School will help make a more inclusive society and help better the lives of people with developmental disabilities. We thank the Lord for using school inclusion to show us how we are all important members of the Body of Christ.
