Dear Penndco Supporters!
 

We would like to share with you how important for us to enjoy a talking time! We have discussed with parents about Talking Time vs TV Time.          

Penndco children loves to watch TV or videos, and therapists can use TV only with a reason to interest a child in books, songs and communication. Many computer programs teach our children new vocabulary and provide an opportunity to listen and to follow directions. We recommend our parents to have a limited time watching TV with a child, and if watching TV together with a child, using the pause button for videos. Discussion during a watching TV is very important for child’s brain development. If child has a limited vocabulary, we recommend to use more effectively books activities, 3D book activities, songs and rhyming, and labeling. Our goal is limited TV/videos time, and more time in using Visual Helpers to help our children understand and talk about feelings and social situations.                     

Sophie's mother shared that she decreased TV time for her child, and she did a focus on reading the books with the real pictures. As a result, a child’s vocabulary is increased! Mother of Samuel shared that she has used a combination of the videos, especially family videos, with reading a book to help her child to communicate and to ask help.                                    

One of the valuable Penndco recommendation is turn TV time into talking time!
Penndco Board of Directors supports this statement in reaching our social and communication goals. 
Talking time is Fun! Every new word counts! Every interaction counts! Increasing communication is our main goal for 2022-2023 school year!

Dear our Donors,

During spring time community programs for children are taking some precautions to ensure the continued health and safety of those served and those who provide services. Penndco therapists provide the services for our children and their parents or family members by using the following technology such as Zoom, Skype, Viber, Face Time, phone conversations or having the service in person. We understand how important to provide opportunities to children and their parents by using some effective strategies, activities as well as suggestions during tele-intervention communication or in personal connection. Together we enjoy child's home activities by discussing child's progress and child's needs. Samuel's mother shared how important for her to participate with her child in tele-intervention program by learning new strategies and  how to help her son to play nicely with toys and adults at home and how to help him with following daily routines at home and daycare appropriately. 

We friendly remind our parents that health and safe playtime at home or a daycare is a number one priority, and we need to follow through universal precautions and Penndco illness policies. We understand how our children with autism spectrum disorder require to have the social interactions for increasing their social skills and communication. We are happy to come back to Penndco for enjoying with our children and families the social life and wonderful greeting time. Alexander's parents are so appreciative to have the therapy with their son in person at Penndco. They always appreciate us for a safety environment! 

Thank you all Penndco donors and supporters for providing financial support during last three months. We appreciate your help always!

Thank you for your cooperation!

Stay healthy and safe!

Dear Penndco Donors! 

As everyone is aware, we experienced a serious storm on Wednesday, September 1, 2021. 

Penndco center sustained severe flooding that has left us with a loss of 80% of our toys, therapy materials, furniture, and office equipment. We lost our Social Skills Library and sensory materials and tools. Penndco center requires to be renovated. We are working on it, and we appreciate our therapists, community supporters, and parents for their real help in this restoration process. We know that you, our donors, will help us to buy new toys, books, materials, and furniture for our children. Thank you for your understanding and support.

Watching TV and videos often is a preferred activity for a child; however, we need to remember it is a passive activity that allows few opportunities for a child to communicate.            

Penndco children loves to watch TV or videos, and therapists can use TV only with a reason to interest a child in books, songs and communication. Many computer programs teach our children new vocabulary and provide an opportunity to listen and to follow directions. We recommend our parents to have a limited time watching TV with a child, and if watching TV together with a child, using the pause button for videos.

Diana’s mother shared that she decreased TV time for her child, and she did a focus on reading the books with the real pictures. As a result, a child’s vocabulary is increased! Mother of David shared that she has used a combination of the videos, especially family videos, with reading a book to help her child to communicate and to ask help.
