There's an adapted gymnastics class, which is similar to the toddler class. We've taken the toddler class twice, so that wasn't an option.
Based on Ellie's needs, an extra coach, just for Ellie, was assigned to her three-year old class. Her regular coach is proficient in sign, far more so than our family. Her extra coach wants to be a special education teacher.
Ellie was a little lost during class (as she often is in large groups) but she was kept on track, she tried almost every activity, and she looked so proud. After a full week at school, awful allergies, and a bad reflux episode the day prior, I was amazed she didn't just roll over and fall asleep.

Yay for Ellie!
Yay for inclusion opportunities!
Yay for weekends!
