Freddy's Friends

Freddy is an eccentric and loving almost 2-year-old boy. He loves Mickey Mouse, walks, peanut butter, finger painting, and trying new things! He works very persistently to learn to walk, sign, eat, drink, and master every-day tasks. He learns from his older brother, Xaiden, and helps teach his younger brother, Lucas - his two favorite people. He loves being the center of attention and being involved in anything he's invited to participate in!

This year, Freddy's benefited from the DSA more than ever before; we've utilized Chit Chat groups to get new signs down, gone to Tiny Tots to socialize, hung out at the Family Picnic and the Easter Egg Hunt for fun, taken advantage of respite, gone to parent outings and the Lighthouse FUNdraiser, and many more things. Without the DSA, we would have limitations in socialization, learning, and growing new skills.

We're very grateful to have the DSA of NWI in our lives!
