KSSB Summer Programs

This year was Peanut’s very first year at the Kansas State School for the Blind (KSSB) summer school.  It was a three week program that ended this past Friday with a musical extravaganza, and I cannot recommend it enough.  Peanut got to spend three weeks immersed in a school where everyone was like him, and we think it did wonders for his self-esteem.  He also learned a lot–without always realizing it–and had a lot of fun.  He came home excitedly to tell us about:

  • swimming
  • fishing
  • playing t-ball
  • sliding on a water slide (like a Slip n’ Slide)
  • riding bicycles
  • rollerskating.

He came home daily with a sheet of paper tucked in his backpack that explained what he’d done in school for social skills, O&M, technology, and other aspects of the Expanded Core Curriculum, so we had a good idea of what he’d been doing even when he didn’t want to tell us all about it.  If you’re in the Kansas City area and have a school-aged child with a vision impairment, be sure to check out KSSB’s summer programs for next year.  You’ll be glad you did.
