We are so pleased to feature Marissa this quarter! Marissa jumped from Group Leisure into a more comprehensive half-day “A Day in the Life” program, and has really risen to the occasion. She has learned how to plan her time, consider many variables, and has increased her social communication skills with peers and the community. She has also discovered that she likes hiking, Frisbee golf, and going to the mall. We love seeing her prideful attitude as she takes on more and more each week.
Please see below for Marissa’s responses to an interview with CBI Assistant, Anna Rosen.
