September Service Center Spotlight: Easterseals Central Illinois Learning Academy

Students in grades 6-12 from Easterseals Central Illinois Learning Academy went to the Morton Pumpkin Festival this month. During their trip they worked on a variety of skills including; patience, waiting in line for a ride and waiting while other friends took a turn on a ride they didn’t want to go on. Compromising, riding a ride that a friend wants to ride before riding a ride they wanted to ride. Social skills and communication, using their words to choose a ride or say “I’m hot and I need to take a break to cool off.” Time management, giving them only enough time for two more rides. Students enjoyed their time at the annual Pumpkin Fest and learned some new skills along the way!
