Camerynn came to Project ASTRIDE in 2004 as a four-year-old. She was afraid, timid and stayed safely within herself. Her physical challenges kept her in a wheelchair for most of a day and she brought a new challenge to the PA instructors.
Camerynn was able to quickly process instructions, but her body took much longer to respond.
The instructors were scratching their heads. Camerynn was always 2-3 steps behind, but she seemed to understand the directions. The instructors figured it out and slowed things down for her. They were well rewarded. Cameryn’s mesmerizing smiles told them they were on the right track.
Cameryn didn’t quit, get angry or uncooperative. She persevered. Camerynn is the source of smiles and heartwarming thoughts. She challenged Project ASTRIDE to adapt to her – and the instructors did.
“Camerynn finds such a positive place in Project ASTRIDE. ASTRIDE is all about what she CAN do, not what she can’t do. They are so innovative. The staff and volunteers are patient and kind. Camerynn’s face lights up when we drive up the driveway. She finds joy there. Project ASTRIDE never gave up on her. “
- Ashley Stalberger, Camerynn’s Mom
