As the school year comes to an end, I would like to thank the teachers and staff at Pikes Peak Online School (PPOS) for helping my daughter find her voice.
Abby has oral apraxia, which is a condition where the connection between the brain and tongue is slower than average. This makes pronunciation a challenge, and Abby would regularly become frustrated when she couldn’t get her words out.
Since enrolling at PPOS, I have seen Abby grow as a leader thanks to the opportunities the school has provided. PPOS is a positive, encouraging environment where she is able to gain confidence in her learning abilities.
Abby is now an honor roll student — a first for her — and she is very involved with volunteering at a local therapeutic riding center!
