Oak Forest Fire Department
Visits DHH ESY Program
 

Oak Forest Fire Department was able to come help cool down the summer heat by visiting Southwest Coop's Deaf and Hard of Hearing ESY Program. On July 26th, Nick Smith from the Oak Forest Fire Department came to the DHH ESY Program to talk about fire safety and prevention. Students practiced how to check a door safely, learned how to create an escape plan, and heard  first-hand experiences and stories from a fire fighter. 

Afterwards, all the students were given a private tour of one of the Oak Forest fire trucks. Students learned facts like how many gallons of water a truck holds and what kind of tools firefighters keep on the truck. They even had a chance to sit in the cabin! Southwest Coop would like to thank the Oak Forest Fire Department for a day of learning and fun. A special thanks goes to Nick Smith for organizing the event and for his presentation. 


CD Rocked ESY....Literally!

The CD program hosted Rock Your Speech, a music project geared to increase language acquisition for students with ASD. Rock Your Speech was founded by Alison and Tom Peterson (bass player of the rock group Cheap Trick) and inspired by their son Liam. It is this group's mission to help all kids to "find their voice through music." SWCCCASE hosted this groups' FIRST school assembly during ESY with the CD Program. 



Students made instruments, sang along, and danced! We had a great time hearing our favorite tracks, like "Alphabet City" and "Blue," live with Rock Your Speech artists. It was an engaging event for all attendees.
