Photos Tell Our Story!

Hello Friends!  Buna prieteni!

We are excited to write and share some wonderful photos to give you a peak into our Delia's Learning Center. Here are just a few really important highlights since we last wrote: 

  • Drum roll please.... We are hiring a part-time social worker to develop a teen program. Hard to believe but we now have six teenagers attending the Center. As they enter this next phase of their life, we would like to include more instruction in development of life skills and to work with the kids and their foster moms on increasing independence and self-care. 
  • With your funding assistance, our team took an additional class series in Applied Behavioral Analysis (ABA) Therapy. One of our teacher is already certified in ABA and was thrilled to be able to continue to build her knowledge to help the kids. The class was also very helpful for our psychologist and speech therapist
  • One of our little girls with autism who came to us last year never smiling and not speaking is now SMILING and while we never heard her speak before, she is now singing and interacting with other children!
  • A key goal is to provide educational support as 85% of all autistic children in Romania do not go to school. The kids are making progress in learning the basic of the alphabet, writing and math. They especially love puzzles!
  • Learning appropriate ways to interact socially is critical for all kids. It doesn't come naturally for most children with autism and we are so proud of the growth we have seen as kids who never had friends before are establishing relationships!

2022 promises to be bright and full of opportunities! We can't wait to help our kids open new doors!

As always, we are grateful for your ongoing support. It means the world to us that you have helped us continue to grow and meeting the ever-evolving needs of these special children!

All best,

Lauren Fishbach, U.S. Board President , The Delia Foundation and Delia's Learning Center Co-Founder
