Telling our Stories

July 15, 2015

*We have reached out to both our students and adult residents who call Latham Centers home and have asked them to tell us their stories. They’ve courageously battled through medical and familial issues to be where they are today and they tell the stories of what makes them happiest while others will tell you about their journey through  medical diagnoses like PWS. These stories tell the truth behind what it means to have special needs from our incredibly respected residents and we thank every resident for sharing and every staffer for listening. To respect the privacy of our individuals, we have changed their names.

Eddy:
I have Prader-Willi Syndrome and this is MY story. I like to go to the Amusement Park and go on the rides. I like watching super hero movies because I find them fun. I also like watching videos about trucks and emergency vehicles. They are some of my favorite things to watch. Because I have Prader-Willi Syndrome, food is something that can be really difficult for me. Living at Latham helps me because of the food security and the staff helps me with my anxiety. It can be hard being away from my Mom, but I know Latham helps me and my family.
