Wilson moved back home and on March 10th he started at a new, alternative day school in Vermont that offered a half day of academics in the mornings and an elective or community based services in the afternoons. They even had a farm with goats and chickens and a wood shop that Wilson was able to work in with tools, so he was over the moon! He also went on the road with the man who developed the energy work program at the Hunter school where they would do workshops and teach others about the program. A few Hunter school students went on this trip, and Wilson was chosen to be the team leader!
Wilson has since transferred to a new school, Maple hill, which has a vocational program that he loves! He is a master of his energy, he is happy, and he is loving life! Wilson and his family are loving living together full-time, at long last.
