Marcus has a one-on-one session with his teacher, Kim Lopes, at Middle Creek School.  He has been in the same autism-specific classroom for two years.  However, he must move up to a higher class level next year, despite being unprepared for the material. .."As far as Marcus living a regular, normal life with everybody else in the world, that might not be right for him and he might not be happy with that," Erin said.  "So why should I push that on him?  We just want Marcus to be happy.  We want him to reach his full potential, whatever that might be."
