Our son Wyatt was born with a very large, rare brain tumor called a Desmoplastic Infantile Ganglioglioma. It was found and removed when he was just 4 months old.
He is now almost 6 and amazes everyone with what he has accomplished! He is currently in the Special Ed Kindergarten at Cache Primary School in Cache, OK.
This spring, he participated in the Special Olympics at Fort Sill. The younger athletes spent the day in a gym doing events and playing with volunteer Soldiers. One of the games was an area set up with the Imagination Playground blocks. This area was by far one of the more popular areas with the kids. http://www.imaginationplayground.com/product/index.html
We are trying to raise enough money to buy a set of the Big Blue Blocks for Wyatt's class. This year there are 8 boys in his class with all different abilities. But they are all still active little boys! These blocks would provide opportunites not only for them to play, but to be improving muscle tone, planning skills, and social interactions.
