Dear Cuyler’s EA,
I just wanted to take the time to say thank you.
I will never forget the way your face fell when I told you that Cam’s little brother, my little boy had been diagnosed with autism. You knew the path that lay ahead. You’ve walked it yourself.
I was thrilled to find that you were to be Cuyler’s EA when he started kindergarten. Leaving him in unfamiliar territory was made easier by leaving him with a familiar face.
Thank you for pushing him further than he wants. He can always do more – you bring the potential out of him.
Thank you for your tough love approach and never placating him.
Thank you also for keeping it real and never sugar coating anything.
Thank you for highlighting all of his strengths and never letting his challenges outweigh them.
Thank you for telling me you know what I’m going through. When you say “I know what you’re going through”, you really do.
Thank you for telling me I’m doing a good job when I feel like I have no clue what I’m doing.
Thank you for being a part of our team.
Thank you for the peace of mind you give me everyday as I walk out the school doors.
