Review

I work as a special education needs teacher back in Spain and working with the special children is close to my heart. In my line of work, I find children with autism and other mental disabilities are wrongly understood. These children are wonderful and sensitive. My 2 weeks at Yellow House started with an introduction at school and I found just this small act of introducing the volunteers to the children first shows how much effort and thought Yellow House has put into making both the children and volunteers comfortable. This really told me that my 2 weeks is going to be amazing. I also got to swim with the special kids and helped bake cookies. These little activities help them coordinate their thoughts and exercise their fingers to be more agile.
Overall, it was a fantastic experience. It was great to have a sense of being able to give back to the Yellow House community as well. It just took a small bit of individual effort, but when you add the small bits all together, the result is a home away from home that is a a great place to stay.

Would you recommend this program?
