Tommy started with the Centre at six months of age and their team is a huge reason why he is as high functioning as he is today. They were nurturing when they needed to be, demanding of his abilities when they saw the potential and hosted monthy after-hours therapy sessions so I was able to attend and learn in order to continue his therapy practice at home. The staff supported us in transitioning Tommy into community school and to this day, I credit Tommy's educational success to that initial integration.
At 11 years old and in grade five, Tommy continues to be a part of the JMCC family, has enjoyed their summer camp four years running and most recently loves participating in their new therapeutic recreation program, especially the bowling league! JMCC has facilitated Tommy's growth physically, emotionally and socially and has given hope to our family. It was terrifying to hear "your son has trisomy 21," but turning to JMCC for support and guidance is exactly what Tommy and our family needed to see Tomy's abilities grow. Thank you JMCC for being a part of our family!
