Friendship and Learning, Learning and Friendship!

Friends to learn with... play with ...help complete a puzzle or build a lego castle... 
For many of our kids at Delia's Learning Center, this is the first time they have had a friend their own age.  Can you imagine being 5, 8, or 11 years old and due to a physical or developmental disability you are rejected from attending school?  No opportunity to learn how to build relationships with peers. No opportunity to learn from each other. At Delia's Learning Center we have a holistic approach and focus on all areas of a child's development: cognitive, emotional, and physical.

Our teachers and psychologist gently guide children toward appropriate social behaviors and encourage cooperative play and learning. During the past two months, we have continued to grow with additional children joining the twice-daily sessions at our Center. New friendships are formed as together, kids practice writing, learn to recognize the letters of the alphabet, or play numbers and matching games. 

What words are there to express when we observe that a child whose autism and lack of socialization has kept him in his "shell," is all of a sudden engaged in a learning game with another child. 

During this difficult year, we have all experienced isolation from friends. Perhaps it will give you a little boost to know that by supporting The Delia Foundation you have helped some very special children learn through friendship.

We wish you good health in the months ahead. Please reach out to myself, Laura Larkin or David Conway if you would like to know more about our work.
