It would be easy for an untrained observer to conclude that Michelle Nutt doesn't have control over her classroom. Often, her preschool-age pupils fail to follow directions. They move around the room when they're supposed to be in their seats, hit and bite children who invade their space and throw temper tantrums. But the teacher seldom responds with harsh words or disciplinary measures.

Denise Mullins went to pick up her son from the Speech and Language Development Center in Buena Park, where he was newly enrolled, and was moved by what she saw.

" "I said, 'You know, that's the setting I want my son in,' " Mullins said. "It was a really good moment to see your kid be part of a social network. " Before attending the Buena Park center, Giovanni needed some prompting to respond to others, his mother said.

The Speech and Language Development Center will be the first school in the state to host an exhibit from the Orange County Museum of Art featuring 10 original works of art dating from 1750 to the present. The collection, which will be exhibited today, is called "The Art of Printmaking." A unique feature of the display is that many of the works have an object related to the art that the students will be able to hold and examine.

Jarrod loved to slip away from his full-time aide and run to the office of his favorite staff member at the Speech and Language Development Center in Buena Park. His disabilities rendered him unable to speak coherently, but he would stand next to her desk, mumbling, until the aide found him there. Eventually, the center's instructors taught Jarrod not to wander. Now he can be relied on to stay in one place -- even outside the office door of that beloved staff member, without walking in.
