Parties or peace?

20 Mar

Daily prompt: Do parties and crowds fill you with energy, or send you scurrying for peace and quiet?

The kids never cease to amaze me. Last week we had a disco at school. They do this regularly. It involves proper DJ equipment, loud music, lights, the works. When I first found out they do them I was utterly amazed. How on earth do the autistic (and downs children) cope with that!? I have some that wear ear defenders all the time, even in a relatively quiet room. 

discoThere seemed to be some type of transformation, and the ear defenders came off, the dancing shoes came out and away they went!! 

I couldn’t quite believe it!

There is always the boy who develops a mysterious illness on these days, though. The rest of the tutor group have bets on whether he will be ‘sick’ tomorrow! 

On the whole, it seemed that disco was ok. I thought about this and wondered why. I am guessing that although the music is loud, it is predictable, and always that volume. The surprise factor is what causes issues. Like when the other students start popping balloons and send all the kids into a spiral hysterical panic!! 

Parties or peace? 

I would have said peace, but with kids, you just never know!!
