Jaden’s mom, Marsha, beams and her eyes fill with joyful tears as she recounts the past few months her son, Jaden, has spent at Special Kids and the remarkable progress he has made during this short time.
“My son, Jaden, is four. He is very smart and always happy. Jaden has a diagnosis of Cerebral Palsy and he’s had a wheelchair for a couple of years now. I had no idea exactly what Special Kids did (before we were here); I didn’t know what it was all about until my son started attending here. Jaden received nursing services and has been at other schools in the past during the day before starting Special Kids but he never moved himself in his wheelchair until he was at Special Kids. His Dad videotaped him and sent it to me because he was shocked also. He wheels himself up and down the hallway now and has learned to use his gait trainer/walker for mobility. He is gaining new independence through his newfound mobility. Special Kids really does help. It is awesome! I am so shocked at the progress my son has made. He’s coming home and he’s talking more and he’s teaching me things. We have time to play...it’s not all work, work, work. I can be his mother and he can be my son. And, I know this next year is going to be his year to start walking. I just know it is.”
Marsha wants everyone to know, “If your child has special needs, this is the place. There’s a range of children with different abilities here. They all can accomplish whatever they want to. They all are made to feel special.”
Jaden is this year’s “Impact Special Kids” partner for the 8th annual Special Kids Race.
Please consider running for Jaden and join “Impact Special Kids”!
