Kiddos' Clubhouse Connection
Kiddo of the Month
Peyton has been working very hard with everyone and is our Novemer “Kiddo of the Month”. Peyton will be nine years old in November. Peyton enjoys music, playing outside, hikes with Daddy, and his iPad. He also looks forward to school every day. He loves the “Despicable Me” series and his favorite color is blue.
When his family was asked about their experience so far at Kiddos’, they stated: “Peyton looks forward to every Monday and going to Kiddos’. When I pick him up from school on Monday, I always ask “who are we going to go see today?” He excitedly responds with “Ms. Nicole, Ms. Carla, and Ms. Jenny.” To put into words the amount of change and growth of development that we have seen in Peyton since starting at Kiddos’ is almost impossible. We have seen drastic changes and improvements in all aspects of Peyton’s development. It is wonderful to know that the therapists truly care about him. He comes out of his therapy sessions with a smile on his face. I remember when we were in the CICU at Egleston wondering “Will he walk? Will he be able to talk?” We have waited a long time for Peyton to be able to eat the same type of foods that my husband and I eat and be able to sit down at the table and eat as a family. He is now achieving all of those things and we ow a great amount of gratitude to Kiddos’ for that.”
Along with receiving a Target gift card, a $100 donation will be made in Peyton’s honor to the charity his family has chosen: Autism Speaks www.autismspeaks.org

Kiddos' Clubhouse Foundation
There continues so be a great deal of need for children in the state of Georgia who are in need of services, but families are unable to afford the proper therapy for them. Since the formation of Kiddos' Clubhouse Foundation in 2009, we have awarded over $335,000 to 130 families in 30 different counties throughout Georgia. There have been many families who did not receive critical monies and we look to continue to raise money in an effort to be able to award more scholarships each quarter.
