Katrina Silva - Adventist University Conductive Education Program

“CECO has been a life changing experience for me. I have learned so much and found a passion in helping our students when I didn’t know what my passion was. If anything, the students at CECO have made a bigger difference in my life than I could ever dream to make in theirs. Starting from a volunteer, to assistant, then lead assistant, after a year and a half of working at CECO I slowly stopped working at CECO as a lead and started working there as a student from Adventist University majoring in Conductive Education. From volunteer all the way to CE student, I’ve loved all the learning along the way to help make a difference in the lives of the students at CECO to use their disability as an ability to work hard and be as independent as they can be.”

Mohammad Uzair Hammad- University of Central Florida Doctor of Physical Therapy Program

“I’m currently a student in the Doctor of Physical Therapy program at UCF. Before getting accepted, I had the privilege of working at CECO. CECO literally changed my life! The experiences and relationships I developed with the children there are priceless to me. During my time at CECO I worked as an Assistant then a Lead Assistant. Both positions helped me develop the skills and strengths I now utilize on a daily basis during the pursuit of my degree. The conductors/ teachers at CECO took the time to teach me the children’s individual needs/goals and the best way for me to help them reach those goals. I learned more through this process than a classroom could ever have taught me! I wish everyone was able to work at CECO. The students there taught me what life’s about. Every day they motivated me to try to be as hardworking and happy as they were ( I don’t think I get close to it.) Thanks to CECO I’m one step closer to my dream career and attending the school of my dreams! #CECOSUPERHEREOS FOREVER!!!”
