Cerebral palsy damages the nervous system and peo- ple with C.P. can't send clear messages from brain to body. The intelligence level is great, Navono said; there's just a problem expressing it. Each day the volunteer staff of Jadawnty works with Jason and Dawn one-on-one to teach them how to work their muscles and relax, and express themselves through talking and motions.

"We need to establish basic communications system so we can evaluate what a child knows, and what a child can and cannot do," Havana said. Both Beall and Havana agree that other programs haven't been able to meet the bill. Progress has been made, but no program has been able to get the child directly in- volved with their treatment, Havana siad. When Navono asked Beall if she would be willing to let her work with Jason, Beall was ready to try something new. "Jason was getting of Dennis and LeeAnn Luker; and Pam Hunter, daughter of Douglas and Ni- la Hunter. Other award winners in- cluded: Missy Routson, Mike Bell, Scott Baker, Meighn Smith and Laura Barnes. Their advisor is Fred Staloch. about two or three hours of therapy in school, and some extra on the weekends. But I wanted to see what would happen if he had concen- trated treatment all day long," she said. Progress fluctuates, she said, but add- ed, "I have seen a definite improvement." ' One example of the im- provement is the discovery that Jasons knows the alphabet and the sounds of the letters. "I never would have found this out in a public school. There are too many distractions and too much time spent in his vheelchair," she said. Jason takes a break after working with letters. Photos by Holly Hagen. Dawn, too, is making pro- gress and Havana said that she is discovering her voice box and is making sounds like she never has before. With one-to-one attention, Navono said, schedules become very structured and don't take into account the children's inability to express themselves. "We have schedules here at Jadawnty, but the schedule of the child wins out, and the demands of the moment. If all day needs to be spent in the bathroom, or if the child is sleepy and wants a nap, they can have it," she said. "We're able to I II I I IN ISSAQUAH ..

"Now we need to differentiate bet- ween these things to find out exactly what it is that Jason wants." "We have gone beyond the pilot programming and want to move on," Havana said. The problem now is finance. The school district gives about $3,000 dollars total, Beall said, but this isn't enough to make the program feasible. The staff is volunteer but the funding doesn't cover the needs of the non-profit organization, Beall said. Navaho spoke to a group of therapists in Wiscorsin, who she said contemplated what she was saying, and were "quietly interested" in what she was doing. "We are way ahead of the mainstreams." "Locked in their bodies like prisoners," is how Havana described Jason and Dawn. "There is great in- tellectual capacity and we want to unlock this," she said. And to look in the eyes of Jason and Dawn is to know that there is much inside. Time to Register for Tale & Decorative Painting Classes Start April 13& 14 ...........
