Scott has been teaching and coaching children of all abilities for over ten years. He has a Master's degree in Education with an emphasis on multiple and severe disabilities with a concentration in Autism from Georgia State University. He was able to successfully blend this degree with his undergraduate degree in Recreation and Leisure from the University of Georgia by developing and directing sports programs for neurodiverse children. One of the sports programs, a rock climbing team that emphasizes social skills for neurodiverse children, adolescents and young adults is still in existence. Scott's passion is evident when he is working with children through different activities that involve education, play and social participation - it is here that his qualities of patience, kindness and humor stand out.
They tell the child,
That work and play
Reality and fantasy
Science and imagination
Sky and earth
Reason and dream
That do not belong together,
And thus they tell the child
That the hundred are not there. The child says: NO WAY. THE HUNDRED IS THERE.
The Hundred Languages
