In Their Own Words
Each day Cotting student writers express themselves through different media
for academic endeavors. Each voice is powerful and unique.
In this, our 2011 Annual Report, the students speak. As you read these
pages, let what each student says confirm what we at Cotting already know:
we serve exceptional students. Whether their thoughts are delivered via
pencils, pens, augmentative communication devices, or a parent’s voice
on tape, each student’s contribution focuses our attention on his or her
compelling message. The song Julie wrote about starting at Cotting School
(opposite page) is the first of many examples.
We invite you to turn these pages to gain deeper insights and an
appreciation for our students’ many talents.
L to R: David Manzo,
Anne Phillips Ogilby and
David Cushing
To the Cotting School Community
This year I witnessed a smooth transition on our Board of Trustees as Chairman
Anne Phillips Ogilby completed her term and passed the baton to David Cushing. A
forward-thinking strategist, Anne balanced the immediate needs of Cotting School
with a clear vision for the future. Our trustees, staff, students and families benefited
from Anne’s extraordinary and visionary leadership. Since her Chairmanship
began in 2000, Anne worked diligently to help Cotting maintain our co-founders’
commitment to excellence and innovation in all areas of our work with children with
special needs.
During Anne’s tenure, Cotting achieved significant milestones, such as accreditation
by The New England Association of Schools and Colleges, a new playing field, a
fitness center, and other major improvements to our campus.
I welcome David Cushing, who has a longtime commitment to the mission of Cotting
School. In addition to his role as a dedicated Trustee, David chaired our Development
Committee. David knows the value of close ties with Cotting students. As a high
school student, his son, Charles, spent one summer as a classroom volunteer and
another as a Program Assistant. It was a time during which David watched Charles
“blossom and gain rich insight into a more vital definition of life.”
I’m deeply thankful for Anne’s leadership and look ahead to working with David in
the 119th year of the “experiment” begun in 1893 by our inaugural Board of Trustees.
Cotting School is fortunate to have a cadre of dedicated Board members whose
leadership is the envy of our peers.
David W. Manzo
Two Fully Funded
With gratitude for the extraordinary
generosity of the many donors who made
these initiatives possible, Cotting School
is pleased to announce the completion
of funding for two major initiatives,
The Cotting Fellowship, ($2 Million)
and The Augustus Thorndike Fellowship
The Cotting Fellowship selects one recent
college graduate in Education to teach
at Cotting for two years under close
mentoring. After successful completion
of the two years, the Fellow is given a
generous stipend toward a Master’s degree
in Special Education, our way of giving
back to the field. It is our hope that, going
forward, Fellows will be ambassadors of the
School, bringing their training, innovation,
and passion for learning with them.
From L to R: Jeanine Dowd, Cotting Fellow 20092011; Erica Schlank, Cotting Fellow 2011-2013; and
Brenna O’Donnell, Cotting Fellow 2010-2012.
Given annually, The Thorndike Fellowship Thorndike Fellows Priscilla Egan and Laura Newton
recognizes a member of the faculty or staff
of Cotting School who exemplifies excellence in service to children with special
needs. While this Fellowship recognizes the extraordinary work of a particular
member of the Cotting School staff each year, it simultaneously acknowledges the
thoughtful, dedicated efforts of the staff as a whole.
2010 Thorndike Fellowship recipient, Laura Newton, expanded the Cotting School
Community Trip Curriculum. 2011 recipient, Priscilla Egan, further developed the
Middle School’s Science Curriculum.
Please see page 21 for the list of donors who have so kindly made these Fellowships a reality.
Not Just A School
by Mena B. Class of 2011
Cotting is not just a school; it’s a community. The support that encompasses the school is
indescribable. At my previous schools, I felt my disability was holding me back, whereas
at Cotting it is my motivation to grow. Between the encouragement of my peers and my
own inner drive, I have accomplished more than I could ever hope. Cotting’s positive
energy is contagious. Anyone can play basketball, no matter what challenges he or she
may face.
What truly separates Cotting from other schools is the students and staff within its
walls. Everyone is so friendly and accepting. My previous school experiences always
tended to lack something. I always felt left out or judged because of my disability. When
I changed to home schooling, I didn’t have many social interactions with kids my age and
the few I was still connected with seemed to slowly fade away. At Cotting I have found
my identity. I have made many friends and feel confident in myself. I have learned more
than what one can read in a textbook. I will carry all of this with me as I take my next
step in life.
Teaching Mena - Brenna O’Donnell
As soon as I met Mena, she shared her desire
to go to a four-year college after graduation.
With the assistance of other staff members,
we created a curriculum that would challenge
Mena in all academic areas while preparing her
for her future.
took the SATs, submitted college applications,
planned for her personal care needs, found
accessible housing, volunteered at a hospital,
got her learner’s permit, and proved to all who
knew her that she was college-level material.
She entered Bridgewater State University in the
fall of 2011. She wants to be a writer.
Mena enrolled in English 101 at Middlesex
Community College’s dual enrollment program,
Nonverbal Communication Says a Lot!
Students at Cotting use a variety of means of communication in their daily interactions.
Some students speak, some use both their own voices and assistive devices, others use
augmentative communication devices that provide them a voice. All of our students know
the importance of nonverbal communication in expressing themselves.
Owen shares news and information via a “Step-by-Step,” a series of recorded messages
made by his caregivers, along with lots of expression that reinforces his message.
Answering yes/no through eye gaze, picture support and nodding, Owen has told us what
he likes about Cotting.
Why I Like Cotting
by Owen L.
I like that my teachers talk to me and ask me questions. I feel proud when I answer. I can
talk to my classmates. I can play in gym class. I feel important in school. My choices matter
to the class and my teachers.
I love having Ms. Alada for a teacher. I like to joke around with Ms. Wini. I love gym. I love
my OT, my PT, my CT. I love using my computer. I do Show and Tell. I don’t always like
doing work in the classroom. I would rather talk with my friends.
Teaching Owen - Alada Caughey and Winifred Birmingham
Owen knows a lot; his head is full of ideas.
There is so much Owen wants to convey.
The “Step-by-Step” communicator gives him
the opportunity to independently share
information. Owen truly enjoys chatting with
his friends and hanging out with them during
the school day. When he wants to engage us,
his eye gaze is determined, intense. He is fun to
work with and very expressive.
I Can Be Independent
by Chris C.
Cotting helps me be independent. I like being on the basketball team and the track
team because I have the opportunity to go to Special Olympics. Cotting has the best
communication therapists (CTs). When I was in my old school I had a chin switch, which
was very hard for me. When I came to Cotting the CT who was working with me gave me a
head switch which is easier for me. Cotting is a good way for people with disabilities to be
Cotting lets me be independent because the physical therapists help me find new assistive
technology. The Cotting staff helps me research my future plans. I like playing in the night
games and playing against the staff.
I liked going on the S.A.LS.E.* weekends because I like to do things with my friends
independently. Cotting has helped me to be more independent. After Cotting, I will
continue to be independent.
* SALSE (Summer Adapted Living Skills
Experience) is a 5-week summer program
for our oldest upper school students to study
transportation, housing, vocational opportunities,
community resources and recreation/leisure.
Students also have the option of spending 1-2
weekend overnights practicing their skills.
Teaching Chris - Brenna O’Donnell
Chris has contagious willpower and an
unwavering desire to learn. With his
augmentative communication device, he shares
his thoughts and visions and enlightens others
with his unique perspective and infectious
A student like Chris makes educators work
harder. He has an exceptional attitude and
ambition, and he brings out the best in others.
His admirable work ethic has led him to his
current status as a dual enrollment student at
Middlesex Community College.
I have learned a lot at Cotting School. I have been practicing algebra in my math class. I
do algebra every day and it’s easy for me. Our gym teacher, Mr. Cuddy, taught us how to
play Dr. Dodgeball. I have fun throwing the balls to people who are on the other team. In
Communication Therapy, I have been practicing using my iTouch and iPad, and I am going
to use my iTouch in the community. My Occupational Therapist has taught me how to play
mancala and use a slant board to write better. I love to learn at Cotting School every day.
Cotting School has many things I like. I like Cotting because it’s handicap accessible. I like
my teacher, Mrs. Kattermann, because she’s so nice to me. I love going to recess. I love to
hang out with my friends. Cotting School is a great place to learn and a great place to be.
Teaching elizabeTh Nora Bailey and Larae Kattermann
Elizabeth is an exceptionally bright and
spirited twelve-year old girl. She shares her
thoughts and expresses herself with a range of
communication methods. Her creativity and
imagination shine through in her writing.
In class Elizabeth takes advantage of numerous
creative writing opportunities, loves to read,
and steps up to any math challenge. Everyone
who spends time with Elizabeth can see that
she is a hardworking student. Each day she
comes to school bringing along a smile and a
can-do attitude.

Treasurer’s Report
We make every effort to give our students the full range of
services which optimize their independence, while stewarding
our resources carefully. In recent years we have made
significant changes toward a “greener” campus, while realizing
considerable cost savings. Those efforts continue, particularly with regard to energy
efficient lighting, water conservation, and recycling.
In fiscal year 2011, Cotting School raised $1,017,950 to support operating expenses, the
Cotting Fellowship and the Augustus Thorndike Fellowship, a $193,500 increase from the
previous year.
Since 1893, Cotting alumni, staff, trustees, families, and friends have contributed to our
endowment through bequests of all sizes. The benchmark of a strong organization, these
gifts further our long term financial stability and enhance what we can offer our students.
Please consider supporting Cotting School in perpetuity as you plan your estate.
Thank you for your ongoing support for our deserving students.

Former Cotting Superintendent
(1955-1984) Bill Carmichael
celebrated his 90th birthday on
November 30, 2011. He continues
to share his wisdom and counsel
with the School.
To honor both his birthday and his
wise leadership at Cotting School,
many alumni, staff, trustees, and
fans sent in gifts of $90.
These excerpts from Annual
Reports during his tenure and an
alumna’s recollection reveal
the amount of care he took and
the high standards he set for his
If we are to accept the theory that education of the
handicapped is preparation for living in a world with the
non-handicapped, then we must accept the responsibility
of providing the means for them to share in the same
experiences, insofar as possible. They must be challenged
to their capacities.
- Letter from Bill Carmichael, Superintendent,
Annual Report 1956
There have been a great many changes made since 1894
with new buildings, expanded programs, increased
services, larger enrollment, extended transportation
routes, and many other ways. And yet, while the nature
and severity of disabilities continues to change and
increase, it has not been necessary to deviate from our
original philosophy or guiding principles. This truth lends
testimony to the wisdom, foresight and careful planning
on which this School was founded.
- Letter from Bill Carmichael, Superintendent,
Annual Report 1966
Mr. Carmichael was always fair and expected nothing but
the best from his students, which encouraged us to set out
into the world expecting the best from ourselves.
- Elaine Burns, Class of 1968
Cotting School thanks the many donors who have so generously funded these two Fellowships since their inception. Since the role of a teacher in a student’s life has the most
profound impact on his/her success and ability to prepare for the future, we are thrilled to
offer our staff these Fellowships. They ensure Cotting’s role as a national leader in the field
of Special Education.
