Cameron participates in the Discovery Depot child care center at Independence Pointe. At only two years old, he is a rambunctious ball of energy! When we went to visit Cameron to get a few photos for our Impact Story he was a bit shy. Granted, we arrived as he and his classmates were just waking up from their afternoon naps (Oops!). With the help of his teachers, we were able to get him to crack a few smiles for the camera.
How has Discovery Depot helped?
When Cameron joined Discovery Depot, he was having both physical and developmental issues. Aside from the services provided by MRI he also visits a therapist to aid in developing his skills. After working with Cameron it was apparent that his poor vision was impacting his developmental abilities. Once he received his adorable glasses and began working in the classroom, he began to show great improvement.
In his classroom, he and his classmates work on social and emotional learning. Some of the learning includes;
- Practicing sharing
- Sign language
- Taking turns
- Following directions
- Learning colors
- Decision making
How is he doing now?
After speaking with his grandmother about Cameron’s progress, she had this to say, “Through Discovery Depot he has developed greatly.” She has noticed a big improvement in his social skills and his memory. When he enters the building at Independence Pointe he recognizes all of the staff and even knows everyone’s names!
