Success Stories


Posted on: Feb 8, 2013

When Omar began at Bost in March/April of 2011 at nearly 3 years old he couldn’t feed himself, wasn’t potty trained, was afraid of the bathroom and had separation anxiety whenever his teachers would leave the room.  The first couple of weeks he was at Bost were very difficult with his behaviors and with Omar’s refusal to eat.  When the teachers worked with Omar, he would throw his food, plate and all, into the floor.  He refused to talk to his teachers or peers, and would only be content laying in the floor by himself.

Omar began picking up appropriate behaviors by modeling his peers.  He likes to fix his teacher, Ms. Jamie’s, hair, play with Barbies, play in centers, and work on art projects.  Omar can now count to 10, is working on writing his name and can sing his ABCs.  Omar will begin kindergarten in the fall.

Both of Omar’s teachers agree that he has come a long way.  He is one of the most outgoing kids in his class!
