Pippa has made exceptional progress in her time at College. She has learned to reach out with her hands to explore things around her rather than retracting her hand when an object is offered. She now demonstrates empathy and concern for her peers and has developed friendships. Pippa now gets up when her peers show any discomfort and often touches their hands to give comfort."
