This is a great story. It is the kind of good work he is doing working with kids who have special needs, difficult to teach, but the end result is very rewarding for everyone involved. I know your years of experience working with kids along with incorporating the yo-yo skills will continue to be inspirational to others. I thought it was great that the kid was so excited he put a call in to Nana to tell her what he did. Great choice with the picture trick too
I'm sure it made things more interesting for him, and not too intimidating at first. I will update the donation thread about the prizes tomorrow night, as we will be wrapping up the donations by next Wednesday.
