Kindergartner has a ball bowling despite his special health needs
With support from Emily Ocheltree, a medical assistant in Akron Children’s Hospital’s School Health Services, 5-year-old Jack Cleavenger is able to attend kindergarten at his neighborhood public school and even go on fun field trips with his class despite his special health needs. On a recent outing to a bowling alley, Emily helped with Jack’s enteral (g-tube) feeding and joined his teacher and classroom aide in cheering him on.
