Check out the website Tyler built for his Ice Hockey Team, the SDIA Midgets! He keeps the roster, schedule and also the scores. I take photos and film each of the games, and he edits and creates the media and videos for his website.
Tyler is also taking courses to be an apprentice Ice Hockey coach. He has already passed his first online course. Never stop learning!
Once again, Tyler and I were asked to present to a class of over 60 students in the Graduate Program for Special Education at CAL State San Marcos. Tyler wasn’t daunted! In fact he asked could he make a PowerPoint Presentation because the class was so large! He created it, and included all the information about what technology and tools he utilizes in Grade 11 at High School. He even had links within his PPT to go out to the Websites, and FaceBook sites Tyler has made. More info on that in another Post! The long class went by so fast, with all the information and questions from the Graduate students. It was a fun experience for Tyler, and he felt proud to show what he is learning and doing at school. It was a fabulous experience for the Graduate Students to meet a parent and student who have the challenges of dealing with a severe Syndrome, yet approach each day, with a positive attitude, and enthusiasm to learn at school, and have fun playing ice hockey with his team mates!
My son Tyler and I were asked once again to present to Cal State San Marcos Master’s program for Special Education. Tyler’s and my presentation was well received as it gave these students and educators an interesting and heart felt view from a child and parent perspective. They could empathize what we go through everyday. The students gained incredible ideas including how to work with the family, and attain the goals for the child in a joint effort. From my 17 years working with Special Education professionals, I was able to explain how I have created a positive environment with our IEP team for my son.
