Understanding Feelings, Special Children

July 04, 1993

I can't begin to thank you for the wonderful job you did with your article about the Arts Academy project of Audubon Middle School and the Foundation for the Junior Blind ("Students Learn the Fine Art of Sensitivity," June 13).

I particularly appreciate the approach you chose: to acknowledge that the foundation students look and act different from other children, that other people are often a little nervous around them and don't know how to act, and that the Audubon students went through those reactions to arrive at the conclusion that our students are just people, when all's said and done. By taking such a realistic slant, you have helped your readers understand both that it is OK to have those nervous feelings and that they too can come to appreciate and enjoy these special children.
