Client – The Center
Donnell is a bright and good-natured young man who is one of the longest-attending clients at The Center’s day program. When Donnell was younger, he experienced difficulties communicating as a result of his Cerebral Palsy diagnosis. The inability to express himself was often frustrating, as well as limiting.
Donnell began working on his communication skills with the Direct Support Professionals at The Center’s Adult Activity Center (AAC). Through hard work and caring guidance, he was able to improve his speech, allowing him to more clearly share his needs and let his personality shine.
Donnell’s mother, Sylvia, credits the AAC with making it easier to talk with her son, bringing them closer together. The Center’s AAC was damaged due to Hurricane Harvey. With the help of Bike to the Beach, The Center will repair the ACC and continue to help clients such as Donnell!
