Down Syndrome Awareness Month Spotlight on Kennedy

The Down Syndrome Center at Hope Haven

We are off to a wonderful October and heading toward our Buddy Walk on November 7th. This month we are celebrating some of our past and present clients with that little something extra. Today our star is...drum-roll please...
From Kennedy's mom:
What a great idea to celebrate Down syndrome awareness month and I love any chance I get to brag on Hope Haven. As Kennedy just celebrated her 3rd birthday, I'm especially thankful for Mrs. Kris. When we first started regular therapy with Kris, at about 4 months old, we had no idea we'd be meeting one of our biggest cheerleaders. One of my favorite things about Mrs. Kris, aside from her singing, is the fact that she always treats Kennedy as a unique individual. She never uses the diagnosis to classify what our girl is or isn't capable of or how she should be treated. Kennedy is her own unique person in Kris' eyes and is always loved and challenged with a fun mix of songs and play with her "work." Mrs. Kris deserves so much praise for her dedication to excellent service. 
We are thankful for all of the growth that Kennedy has experienced at Hope Haven and look forward to continuing that growth with your wonder team of therapists.

Thank you for sharing your experience with Hope Haven and Mrs. Kris. We think she's awesome too!
