Kyle Dutter

Kyle was a 12 year old autistic boy who loved Halloween.

About Us:

"House is decorated, and I am choosing between a Ghost (of course) a
skeleton, or a pirate captain this year...

I got a new bike (see pics) THANKS DARSEY!

I go to the Halloween store every other evening."

Kyle was murdered by his father this week.

My heart goes out to his surviving family.

My kids at Playsense

Facebook | Your Photos - Playsense

My son comes home from his group home for dinner every week, and we always go to play at this awesome play centre for kids with special needs. The pictures really don't do it justice, but the entire place is designed to serve sensory as well as gross motor needs. I really can't say enough good things about it- they run amazing programs as well as class tours, and we're lucky to be able to go there. Hopefully you can get some idea of it from the pictures :-)
