|PJ (right) started out as all little boys, sharing playtime with his older brother and having the usual curiosities.
Before long he seemed lost in a world of his own.
|Shortly after starting at the Special-Ed Co-op, he was involved in group activities like the school play "The Sky Is Falling" and went on field trips which included a visit to the nearby shopping mall to see 'Santa'|
|When he's done his day's lessons,
PJ is treated to time at the 'Rice Box'. It proves to be a great reward as well as
a calming break.
|After two years at the Special-ed Co-op, PJ goes to a special class at the local grade school where he continues with ABA, sign language, and (as of the 2001 school year) an electronic speach board.|
|At home, some of PJ's favorite ways to relax include listening to music (mostly classical), playing in the pool or sandbox, jumping on the trampoline or just quietly swinging.|
|Some of the best times are at home with his family, whether it's playing with his brothers or getting a big hug from his Mom!|
