Respectful Place to Celebrate

Perkins had it’s Prom last night. The large room was beautifully decorated. Equally beautifully decorated was the Prom Alternative Space. This room was created for the many students with have with CVI. Some students stayed the entire Prom in this adapted space that matched their visual and sensory needs. Other students travel back and forth between the unadapted and adapted Prom as their need for a break is recognized by staff or when they recognize their own need for a break. This allowed students to dress up and socialize in an environment that was comfortable, festive and fun. Isn’t that what Prom is supposed to be?
