Ask your student about this powerful play that we saw on Friday morning. Read the overview of the play from the Children's Theatre website:
Simon's mother is always paying more attention to his younger brother, Jake, who has autism. So when a televised spelling bee is announced, Simon sees this as his opportunity to shine, until he discovers that brother Jake is a great speller, too -- in his own, special way. Simon has to decide if he can share the spotlight with his brother and come to terms with what makes us all unique. Making its U.S. premiere, Spelling 2-5-5 takes at poignant look at inclusion, compassion and sibling rivalry.
