OVIEDO, FL


Nate and I were offered the opportunity to go to the ABC Schoolhouse and photograph the students and teachers.

The ABC Schoolhouse is a nonprofit school located in Oviedo, Florida, that serves children with autism and related disabilities. They recently moved to their new location from Winter Park and are now able to stretch their legs in a gorgeous new building on an acre of beautifully shaded land. The school uses a dynamic program unique in the area to provide the students with the best possible assistance and to work with the student's families in order to meet each individual child's needs in the most effective way possible.

I've known the staff for about a year and a half and they are such amazing people! The two founders, Hyndi and Bobbi are passionate about the school and are constantly working on ways to be on the forefront of autism research and therapy. The rest of the staff is so much fun to watch with the kids. They are patient and loving and so easy going that you feel like you are part of a fun family more than a school.

This is the type of place that is making a difference not only with research and knowledge but also with love and compassion. I feel so blessed to know these wonderful people and get to document the amazing work that is going on at the ABC Schoolhouse.

Back to school!




Here are just some of the smiling faces that make up the staff. You may recognize Susan from her gorgeous beach wedding last May.
