Telling our Stories

September 10, 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.

My Story
My name is Evan and I have PWS. Having independence has changed my life with PWS. I can go on walks and be alone at the playground. I learned this at Latham.
When I first came to Latham and moved in I was a bit nervous. One of the important things with PWS is learning about how to handle anxiety. Now, at Latham I am a very happy young man and I don’t normally get any anxiety!
