Magnolia Trace third grader with autism wins writing contest
Nicholas Seal is one of Project Independence's kids we represent.
Magnolia Trace third-grader Nicholas Seal, diagnosed with autism, has faced challenges his whole life. His most recent challenge was a class assignment that involved taking the story of "Goldilocks and the Three Bears," changing the characters and placing the story in a new setting.

According to his teacher, Debbie Dermid, it is an assignment that is typically difficult for autistic children. In fact, Nicholas was initially reluctant to change anything about the timeless story. When he finished the assignment, however, his version of the story, "Goldinglocks and the Three Alligators," won first place in the 2011-12 Young Authors’ Competition, sponsored by the Northshore chapter of the Reading Council.
