One of my CoF officers asked one of our students to our adapted prom today. He was so excited. Just the day before he was telling me that he would never be asked to a dance and feeling really down. She made him a big chocolate cupcake that said "Prom?"
We do sometimes have a group go to the "regular" prom as well, but this one has the music volume and other sensory stuff adapted for our students, the cooking class makes treats, and ASB sets it up with a theme (Paris this year). We have a lot of gen ed peers that go, many who aren't even in CoF, and the feedback we always hear is that it is more fun than "regular" prom. :)
