‘FAN Network’ expands with school opportunity

Logan County Board of Developmental Disabilities clients Paul Patterson and Kim Rodabaugh recently have volunteered their time to listen to Calvary Christian School first graders read aloud as part of a community engagement effort offered by the agency. 
 
The LCBDD has created a “Friends, Allies and Neighbors Network,” which connects people and organizations in the community who are committed to enhancing the lives of individuals with developmental disabilities in Logan County. Calvary Baptist Church recently became part of the FAN Network. 
 
During one of the reading sessions, Ms. Rodabaugh encouraged a student as he struggled to sound out a word. 
 
“It is okay; I still have trouble reading at times. The important part is to keep on working on it.”
 
Mr. Patterson told students that knowing how to read makes people’s lives much easier. He said not knowing the difference between the words “salt” and “sugar” could ruin his morning coffee and he wants to make sure anyone that wants to learn to read has the opportunity.
 
To become part of the FAN Network, there is no official commitment and no formal membership. Share your contact information with This email address is being protected from spambots.
