The child I can’t forget: Katherine

Katherine is our director of early childhood services

“One student here at the Jordan Center that I’ll never forget was in my child’s class. He had a backpack and a feeding tube that he wore – a continuous feed – and he wore this backpack all day.

“He was this really super, happy, loving, wonderful kid who had such an impact on his whole class. And the impact he had on me was watching my own child experience inclusion and differences. When he finally didn’t have that backpack anymore, and I said something to my daughter about what a great thing that was, she had no idea what I was talking about. The difference just meant absolutely nothing to her. He was her friend and he was in their room and nothing else mattered.

“And that is the beautiful thing about life at the Jordan Center.”
