Cynthia Lord Visit!

Cynthia Lord, author of Rules,  visited Sexton Mountain today!  We are especially excited about this visit because Rules centers on the story of a big sister who happens to have a younger brother who is on the Autism Spectrum.  Through out the story, we learn a bit about autism and we also learn how to understand the perspectives of others and how our actions and words can show how we care by creating an inclusive environment.  

Cynthia's visit also happens to fall on World Autism Awareness Day! We feel so lucky that Cynthia spent special time with both SRC classes and read her books about Hot Rod Hamster! We learned about the actual animals Cynthia based her characters off of! It was a wonderful experience for both students and staff!
