Holly

Wants to be a firefighter

Holly was diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder at only two-years-old. At that time, she wasn't saying any words and her mom was concerned. After receiving speech therapy at Grandview Children's Centre, the words soon came, and she's now five and speaking in full sentences and even singing her favourite songs from Frozen. She also received occupational therapy that helped her to practise the activities of daily living. Today, he is in SK and is enjoying her in-class adventures with her new best friends. Her mom, Kristen says: "Holly used to be so shy and reserved, she wouldn't have talked to anyone. Her time at Grandview Children's Centre has turned her into a totally different child."
