As I slowly climbed the stairs to my office, one of our students offered to help me with my “heads” (another story, another time, I promise). And in that moment, I felt better. I have no hard numbers for you, but it is in my humble opinion that one of the reasons Latham is successful working with children and adults with PWS and other complex special needs is because we have a caring community here. It’s not just that the staff “gets” PWS; everyone here “gets” it. We are each other’s support system and it makes a challenging life more manageable and frankly, more fun. Looking around my work world is reassuring to me that we are on the right track. I can only hope the rest of the world follows our lead.
