Nights of Latham
As the day grow shorter and summer comes to an end the students of Latham are beginning to think of the upcoming school year. Thoughts of new classrooms or teachers are at the top of their lists, but as caregivers we are thinking of how we can best prepare them for these new adventures.
Like many parents we are helping the students by getting new clothing. The staff at Latham truly believes that helping a student look their best is one of best ways to start their day. If the students (and people in general) feel good about their appearance it makes them more confident in their lives and our hope is that that confidence will carry over to other areas of their lives. Of course the long term goal is that the students will be able to master their personal care skills so they can be independent with this in their everyday lives.
