Katy ABCs

For those of you who dont know, Katy was diagnosed late with PKU. She was 13 months when we found out. She was born in Mexico and they did not screen her. She suffered severely and was even having seizures four to six times a day. We put her on diet and therapies as soon as we got her diagnosis. When she turned three years old, we moved to the USA to get her into school. Little did I know that I would have the opportunity to have a career change and become a special education teacher. Katy was my student in my first year of teaching. I have learned so much stuff, and have been able to help not only her, but many other kiddos as well.

Here is Katy, working hard against all odds as she tries to catch up to her regular ed kinder peers. This is the tip of a great iceberg and Im looking forward to the many changes that are about to come...
