Let's Make Friends!
Dear our Donors,
We greatly appreciate your kindness and support to our children and their families. We know how important to have a community resources for families who have children with autism spectrum disorder or social communication difficulties. Looking around us at the difference your financial support has made to our organization, we know that to be true.
The ability to play with other children can take a long time to develop and requires patience, persistence, and new toys, tools, and Social Skills Library that includes visual helpers such as social skills cards, posters, and albums. Your financial support helps us to organize structured and non-structured playtime, cooperative playtime, playing and learning time together, playtime with a partner by using favorite toys, tools, books, and sensory materials.
A successful social skills playtime is our valuable goal. David's mother shared that David has trouble understanding and talking and difficulties to follow one step directions. We understand mother's worries because all these components are very important for nice social skills activities. Teaching parents to use Hanen strategies during social skills playtime is our way to help children to choose the right toys and activities, to find the right friends, and to help children with sharing the toys. Teaching children how to play and what to say is our main step during cooperative play. For example, Jake wants to join in but does not know how. Using right toys, tools, and strategies is helping our children to make friends at different stages of communication.
Again and again we would like to send to all our supporters our special Thank You! Thank you for the new books, games, cards and shelves that our children can use during their social skills activities.
