Winter Guard

My marching band kid, an amazing sibling of a kid on the autism spectrum, is participating in winter guard again this year.
The instructors have provided a safe place to try a new activity (she's never danced and yet she wanted to participate in winter guard) and they have provided excellent instruction, allowing her to leave her comfort zone and take the risks involved in learning new skills in a new activity. The instructors are wonderful guides and teachers and I am grateful for them. I learn from them as they provide opportunities for students to walk into uncertainty to try something brand new. Watching them helps me intervene with the kid with autism.
