June, July and August have been great for Shawn. Shawn enjoyed a "ride on the wild side" at African Lion Safari in June which was a great success. He then went out and watched a baseball game in East City in July and also enjoyed his lunch by the water in Hastings. Then in August, Shawn had a movie night at the drive-in, in Lindsay. Shawn appeared to really enjoy all the music, bright colors and sounds from the movie. This summer has been a stepping stone for discovering Shawn's interests we can't wait to see what adventures fall/winter bring for Shawn!!
Anyone who knows Greg Wilson, knows how much he loves cooking and socializing. This past Wednesday Greg attended a live tapping of Cityline's morning show in Toronto. Dressed in bright yellow so that he had a better chance of being on TV, Greg had a great time and even got some free swag!!! Cityline airs weekdays at 9am on channel 20. Please keep an eye out for Greg on next weeks episodes!!!
Hi my name is Kate Eastabrook. I am writing this good news story. A few months ago I would have had someone type this for me. On July 10 and 11 I went to Ottawa with my parents and a staff member of CLP. The highlight of my trip was bringing home my new computer. This computer uses eye gaze technology. I am able to email, go on Facebook, YouTube and the Internet. It has made me more independent. It can be frustrating sometimes but I love it!
Shawn Takes a Ride on the Wild Side
At the end of June, Shawn was supported to Canada's Original Safari Adventure: African Lion Safari!!!!
Shawn enjoyed the trip and the up close encounters with the animals!! Shawn likes going for long drives so this was a perfect outing for him. Shawn and his support team continue to plan outcomes that provide Shawn with a meaningful day. More adventures to come soon!
