Ten-year-old Jaden Ambroise is happy and easy-going, according to his dad. But just a few years ago – before Jaden came to Bancroft – he was often unhappy and upset. With limited ways to communicate his needs and desires, he would scream and bite his finger in frustration.
At Bancroft, Jaden has learned many words and can tell people what he wants. He even won an award for most improved student. Moreover, due to his autism, Jaden once had little tolerance for new people and places.
“New he’s fine when we take him somewhere new and he’s around other children,” says Jaden’s dad, Schiller. “He definitely has a brighter future.”
“Jaden is learning communication and social skills, which will help him in all aspects of life – including in the workplace one day,” says teacher Kara Roman. “He can now ask for things and say if he doesn’t like something. He really has transformed.”
