I guess our classes aren't really confirmed yet so this is premature, but bear with me. :-)

My son, 11, is planning to attend Discovering the American Spirit and is very excited, but he is also feeling anxious bc he doesn't know exactly what to expect. One of the quirks of his SPD is that novelty can be anxiety-producing bc he doesn't know what he's going to experience or what the expectations will be of him. We talk through the class description and watch the video, but it occurred to me that someone here might have taken the class before and be able to describe their experience or share photos. Thanks so much for taking the time!

We haven't scheduled American Spirit for at least 5 years, and I wasn't the chaperone for it, unfortunately, so I can't tell you anything about it (other than what I've read). I'm sorry. :(

Aw, bummer. Is it okay for me to ask here, once we are finalized, if one of the chaperones is familiar with SPD (or Asperger's, as a lot of his behaviors are similar) so that we can talk ahead and he can have an adult who is his go-to? Just want to be proactive so he can feel at ease going in! :-)

Hi Jennifer, please email me about this so I can talk to you about the best options for your son.

 

Warmly,
