Mainstreamed at Pennsbury High School, Caroline routinely surprises everyone with what’s inside that brain. Listening to books on tape and her Mom-Mom Barb read aloud – Catcher in the Rye right now – she really likes math and uses an eye gaze control to manipulate her computer. But, as Mike says, “She gets frustrated when it doesn’t respond or work fast enough. One day, she was trying to complete math problems and I could see it wasn’t working so I switched her to a large calculator and let her use the head pointer. Boom. Boom. Boom. She blew us away just like that, not even needing the calculator to do the actual work. She just gave us the answers immediately.”
