Amazing Twerelie

Grace was home from school today because it was a snow day. She spent much of the day having to entertain herself. Here is one of her projects. She took some of her Monster High dolls and created a story and took pictures ..which we then turned into a video. Grace calls this episode “Twerelie”.

Merry Christmas -Beautiful Video

When Kaylee Rogers, 10, first came to her small school in Northern Ireland, the little girl with autism and ADHD was very quiet around other students and rarely spoke up in class.

Four years later, a love of music has transformed Kaylee into a confident singer now sharing her amazing voice with the world. Her show-stopping version of Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah” at this year’s holiday choir performance at Killard House Special School in Donaghadee has drawn raves from around the world.

“She was a very reserved, non-communicative, anxious child when she first came to us at 6 years old, but we noticed she always enjoyed singing in the class,” Killard House principal Colin Millar told TODAY. “Our music teacher put her in major roles in the school plays, and it took off from there.

“When she sings, she just opens up into the beautiful young girl she is and shows the talent she has. It’s her way of dealing with the anxiety and really just settles her down to allow her to access her learning abilities.”
