Fragile X Superstar

Eric is a 31-year-old young man who hails from Cincinnati. He has been a student at Stewart Home & School for 15 years, and during that time he has continued to grow and mature!

Eric loves sports! He keeps up with Major League Baseball, and the NFL – looking up stats and printing out schedules from the Computer Lab. Eric is a great athlete himself, currently playing Special Olympics softball, and later in the year, will be playing basketball. You can also find Eric improving his soccer skills, and even flag football!

In addition to sports, Eric’s other interests and hobbies are many! He enjoys Lego projects, singing in the choir, his job at the SHS kitchen, fishing, and even learning about dentistry!

Eric’s charming personality made him the perfect candidate to represent the school at the 14th International Fragile X Conference, which was held in 2014 in California! Eric spent each day of the conference working at the exhibit booth, pointing out pictures and information to visitors of our booth.

    We are delighted to see this portrayal of Eric’s life at Stewart❤️ He continues to thrive in the rich environment that Stewart offers. It amazes us how he continues to learn new skills as an adult – in basketball, hand bells, choir, researching his interests on the computer are just a few. Most of all he lives a full life surrounded by friends & a loving staff. He is so content, it’s hard to get him to visit us at home!
