Today I was hoping to be able to post about our wonderful trip to Little Ray's Reptiles.
Instead Alex had a massive temper tantrum and I got to wait outside while Nathan and our aide completed the tour. A disappointment and embarrassment to say the least.
On the other hand, I've learned that the facility is very special-needs friendly. Clients with special needs only pay $ 5 for the entry fee and are entitled to a free caregiver. And they appear to hire special needs staff.
The staff were great with dealing with Alex's tantrum. They asked me what they could do and showed me where I could have some privacy to deal with him. I left after a bit because Alex was being loud, violent and trying to escape, which I thought was just too much to inflict on other clients.
