“KATIE’s WAY” to open March 16th, 2015

The No Stone Unturned Foundation and Katie’s Way are pleased to announce their expanded partnership to add team-based care for children and young adults who face challenges associated with mental health care. Currently, the No Stone Unturned Therapeutic Learning Center (TLC) serves children with disabilities using a team-based approach to physical, occupational, speech and behavior therapies. The expansion and additional services will further the team concept by adding psychologists and board certified psychiatrists.

Watch this. Guarantee it's worth it.

While the NFL is dealing with the issue of bullying in the Miami Dolphins locker room, a middle school football team in Michigan has a deeper understanding of the game that pros may never reach.

The Olivet Eagles football team at Olivet Middle School in Olivet, Michigan, decided to run a play and intentionally not score, all without their coaches knowing.

The football team planned the play for weeks, all so they could set up a very special moment for a special boy.

Keith Orr is a special needs child, and his buddies on the football team decided to give him the chance to run for a touchdown.

Sheridan Hedrick, a player on the team, would’ve easily scored a touchdown, but he instead took a knee on the 1-yard line, much to the dismay of the crowd.

That was until the next play happened: the “Keith Special.”

-- Tucked into the Manhattan Medical Center complex is the No Stone Unturned Therapeutic Learning Center, a unique facility for children with developmental and neurological disorders.

"Our mission here is basically to meet the needs of children with special needs, regardless of how little or how much help that they need. That’s in the areas of their speech and language, their communication, their self-help skills- feeding, eating, toileting, their gross motor skills and behavior management as well," said Katie Palenzuela Clinic Director, Speech Language Therapist. The clinic just hired a behavior therapist, rounding out their team of specialists.

Melinda Wolford and her husband, a former K-State football player and alum, founded the clinic in honor of their son, Stone, who was diagnosed at the age of two with a rare genetic disorder called Cardio-Facio-Cutaneous (CFC) Syndrome.Only

This Saturday, come join the other Gamecock fans for a pancake fund-raiser for the Wolford’s foundation, which helps others facing similar challenges.

The birth of a couple’s first child is almost always exciting, but Eric (known even by his wife as “Wolf”) and Melinda Wolford faced immediate challenges after their son Stone was born.
