A Message From Henry Connell
Hi it's me...Henry!!! Two years ago my parents were asked if I wanted to be a part of the SKIP (Staff Kids Inclusion Program) at The Little Light House. My mom has taken pictures of all the kids that go through LLH for the past 18 years and was thrilled when I was invited to have a special spot at the school! Over the past two years I have learned so many things but what makes my mom and dad the most proud is how I have learned to be such a good friend to everyone!
Did you know that one of my best buddies uses a chair to get around and another one uses an app called LAMP on an ipad to talk because he hasn't learned how to use his voice yet and another friend gets her yummy lunch through a tube in her belly because she can't eat through her mouth. Our teachers use sign language and I have learned how to sign a lot of things and can talk with my friends that way too! All of my friends have different things that make them amazing and special and each one of us can do different things and have different abilities and we ALL work together to help each other learn and grow and reach new milestones!!
Another really cool fact about my amazing school is that we all get therapy (OT, PT, Speech and Vision) every week in our own classroom. My favorite is OT but I love PT too!! I also really love Praise and Worship and dancing and singing about how much my God loves me and all my friends!
As amazing as this school is the most amazing part is that it is FREE for all of my friends.....tuition, therapy, nursing needs, etc....it doesn't cost their families anything!! And it is ALL because of amazing people like YOU and others in our community and around that world that give to The Little Light House!!
I am so excited to start my 3rd year and this year I am in Orange class and look forward to making even more new friends!!
Thank you for helping me reach my goals so I can watch my friends continue to meet theirs!
