Zeke Kittinger is now a fifth grader at South Elementary School in Hingham, MA, but he was a preschooler when he first started working with Easterseals Massachusetts. Zeke is on the Autism Spectrum and is a smart, funny, book-loving student who loves his family and his dog. He also happens to be someone who uses Augmentative Communication (AAC).
For Bo, the crushing weight of low expectations fueled his dream and determination to succeed. Bo, who has autism, dyslexia, and other physical and learning disabilities, entered 9th grade barely able to spell nor write more than three-to-four-word sentences. During middle school, a pivotal time in an adolescent’s growth and development, Bo was told by many adults that he wasn’t “smart” and would never “amount too much.” At the same time, his mother Cynthia was told to encourage her son to find work requiring minimal skills with good job security.
