When Avi started attending that preschool we were so disappointed with the way things had gone in his previous preschool program and were hoping this new program would be able to correct some of the mistakes made in his old school. The staff at Avi's school far exceeded our expectations for the short time Avi was there. We could not have asked for a more supportive, more invested staff. Even though Avi was only going to be there for a short time they dedicated themselves to helping him progress as much as possible. Even in the last week the clinical director was looking for ways to help improve Avi's situation. It was really bittersweet saying goodbye to them.
On his last day they held a wonderful farewell party. The other children were really excited to give Avi his "birthday" presents. He loved them! He and Itai are in love with the Spiderman blow up toy. They both seem to think it is some sort of really long chair or a really skinny bed.
Debbie painstakingly selected a present to give to the school. It seems she picked well because the students loved the it! She brought them a game and they were excited to play it. In the end Avi had to say goodbye. It was really difficult to leave after all the good they've done for us, but we're definitely excited for him to start on the school we've waited so long for.
To all the staff, thank you so much!
