|Manny hides during Camouflage|
I think the best game we play is Camouflage because it involves running, hiding, and staying quiet. And if you are planning to become a hunter, it’s a good game for you because Luke makes a great spotter, and he is very good at listening for movements. I say this because it is kind of like hunting, you don’t want the animal you’re hunting to find you or it will get away.

Before we do MFT, Luke and/or Judy usually talk until they get to a middle of a sentence. Then he/she yells out the name of the game that we are playing. And not everyone knows that he is going to yell it out because, he does not usually stutter at all, and he acts as if we are still going to do class. This always comes as a pleasant surprise, because we weren't expecting a break.
This can impact us in many different ways that can help us. A way it impacts me is that it helps me clear my mind of frustrations. It also benefits the other students at the STAR Program by helping them to relieve stress. It benefits us all by giving us the chance to have fun inside or outside, and some of the games help us get to know each other. Another thing it does to impact me is that it gives me a chance to interact, be positive, and think more clearly. I didn’t normally talk to anyone at school until I came up here and got to know them. Now I am friends with them, and I talk to them every time I see them walk in the halls or when I have classes with them. MFT is an important part of our day for many reasons. The reason might be different for each person, but we all benefit from it.
