loved spending time with the kids. being able to make them laugh and take their minds off of the neglect that they have been through really makes a big impact on their lives. I love it

Had a great time per usual. We danced to country music and Beyonce!
it was great talking to Alfredo, a 13 year old with autism, his ability to retain information about a tv show that he watches was impressive and I was glad to see that he was enjoying himself throughout our conversation.
Another good experience, we played bingo, they won prizes. Helped out with the special requests when eating their lunch.
great to interact with kids who have autism. they find the best out of every little thing which is an aspect that most people should have when it comes to enjoying life and coping with specific circumstances such as a mental illness.
Always a pleasure playing bingo with the patients. However, no one really wanted to do arts and crafts as we planned. So, some went into the weight room while I was being challenged to ping pong matches with one of the patients who is really really good.
