Classes were taught by certified public school teachers who are familiar with children on the autism spectrum. Kay Pluta, also a published author, taught writing in creative and fun ways. Using magnetic words to make sentences and letters on post-it notes to play "Scrabble" on a wall, she kept the kids interested in a skill that is often a challenge. Mark Christoph, previously a science teacher, taught Earth sciences complete with videos and hands-on rock collections. Lisa McGrew, a public school teacher and actress, taught social skills using the basics of drama and acting. Overall, the kids learned some fun lessons, met a few new friends, and will hopefully be better prepared to go back to an academic atmosphere in a few weeks. A graduation, complete with cake and certificates completed the program. Congratulations to all the students, and a huge thank you to all of the teacher volunteers and coordinator for making the program so special.
