“Our family moved from Austin to Snyder when Delaney was 8 years old. One of the many blessings of our small town life is that Delaney was immediately embraced by a group of typically developing peers whom she has gone to school and church with for many years. Delaney is well known around town and almost always has friends to hang out with at every social event.
However, in the past few years, we have noticed that Delaney, who is now 16, doesn’t always enjoy the same activities as her typical peers and often tires of trying to keep up or fit in with activities. The disadvantage of a small town is the lack of peers who also have intellectual disabilities. So, we began investigating oppor- tunities for Delaney to participate in activities geared more for her interests and abilities with more similar peers. We were surprised and thrilled to discover High Point Village in January 2012. Initially, we had some reservations about the 1 1⁄2 hour drive to Lubbock to attend after school classes, but we felt it was worth a try. It turned out to be an awesome decision!
Delaney has been attending one or two afternoons per week for the past year and has also enjoyed numerous dance parties, camps, talent shows, and performing at fundraisers. She looks forward to every visit at High Point Village – followed by a trip to Chick-fil-A before we head home. We have noticed how relaxed and independent Delaney feels when she is at High Point Village. The staff, volunteers and other parents are refreshingly positive and seem genuinely happy to be there, so I can see why it has become such a comfortable and important place to Delaney.
Ideally, we would be closer and attend more often to help her develop growing friendships, but for now we know it is well worth travel- ing the miles so Delaney can enjoy these opportunities which have become a new, enriching part of her life.” ~ Sherry Gray
