Self-Determination Pilot Projects: Real people, real lives 6/7

Jeffery and Phyllis Mikalowski

“Self-Determination opened up opportunity for Jeffery. When things come up, I can take advantage of them. He started riding when he was two and half years old. He had a lot of balance issues that the riding helped with. And he started skiing at five years. He goes to a Christian camp in Lee Vining and gets swimming lessons. Skiing, swimming, social events – he’s out there with other kids. They treat him like a normal person!”
