Success Story: David and Wayne

David and Wayne play games to build Wayne’s reading and writing skills. Recently when they met together they played Brain Quest. David says Wayne has an endless supply of jokes, facts, and stories. “He teaches me more than I teach him,” David said.

Wayne enjoys science. Books about science are his favorite. Outside reading, Wayne likes shows about aliens.

David works with Wayne one day at a time. They focus on what is going on in his life and what he may need assistance with. For example, David has taught Wayne how to pay his bills. Now Wayne can do it on his own. Both men have diabetes so their time is a great opportunity to read labels together, too.

“Wayne is doing very well!” David said.
