Easterseals South Florida

Distance Learning at its Best!

Esteban (13) & Samuel (15) are autistic brothers who attend Easterseals South Florida Culinary Arts middle school & high school as well as the aftercare program sponsored by The Children’s Trust. The Ocampo brothers are only too happy to show off their culinary skills from home. Routine is especially important for autistic children. Remote learning, though not perfect, provides a sense of normalcy for Esteban and Samuel where they can continue to learn and socialize. This weeks’ activity meal was a Peanut Butter and Banana Sandwich which the boys made while mom proudly filmed their masterpiece. Watch Esteban’s and Samuel’s culinary video and I’m sure you’ll agree that they did an amazing job!
