My daughter is a student at The Tammy Lynn Center in Raleigh, NC. This is the best place we could have picked for her to attend school. You see, all of the students there, with the exception of the preschool program, have disabilities of some kind. They all deserve an education, like any child, but theirs is customized to meet their individual needs. They may have physical limitations, but they are encouraged daily by the fine folks that work there to reach their full potential. When our daughter was eligible to start school at age 3, we decided she must go to a public school that had a class for children who were multi-handicapped. She was there only 1 year and we decided that she would benefit greatly at a school where most of the students had similar limitations and equal opportunity to learn what they could. Our daughter will be 16 this summer. She has been a student @ TLC for the past 11 1/2 years. Since she has an IEP, she will be able to attend school until age 21, so we have 5 1/2 yrs to go. We could not have chosen a better facility for our daughter to attend school. She is cared for and treated with respect as all people should be, regardless of their abilities or awareness of their surroundings. This place is wonderful and I hope it will be operational for many years to come, to serve others like my daughter and many others with developmental disabilities.
