Yeison is a new student in the special needs class. He lives with his mom, stepdad and 2 siblings in a non-Christian home. Yeison is a middle child. His father has not been a part of his life since he was 4. Yeison was a student in the public school system through 4th grade but after changing schools multiple times, teachers noticing that he was not progressing and after seeking psychological help, Yeison’s mom realized that he should be put into a special needs program. When Yeison entered into Emanuel House in the beginning of 2015, he did not know how to count, nor his days nor months. He also showed a lot of aggression at school and at home. Now, Yeison is showing improvements. He’s learning and is more obedient. His teacher describes Yeison as a wonderful drawer who could be a professional one day. Just like most teenagers, he loves t.v., computers and cell phones.
