Saturday, May 14th, 2022 | 10:30am - 2pm

The "You Look Marvelous Fashion Show" is designed to promote disability awareness & provide the opportunity to build self-esteem for the models. Children, teens & adults with developmental disabilities will be modeling Spring fashions as they strut their stuff down the runway. We are a sponsor of this event & will be tabling at it along with our famous "Forrest The Fox" mascot. The event will be held at the Chandler Center for the Arts from 10:30AM - 2PM.

You may have heard people talk about PECS or perhaps your child’s therapist may have recommended them to you.

 

Often all people know about PECS is that they are those little pictures and the first reaction of parents is to ask why their child should use those because they want to hear their child talk and giving someone pictures doesn’t seem much like helping them learn to vocalize and use their voice. Research does show that it helps our kiddos learn to speak so this blog is to clear up what PECS are, why they are beneficial and to discuss exactly how they can help your family.

Micro-Routines: Daily Activities & Task that Become Normalcy

"It is best to provide children an opportunity to finalize play, by providing them with a forewarning and count in order to facilitate appropriate transitions."
