Every Child is a Valuable Member of the Class!

Dear our Donors!

I am so happy to share with you about what can my partners and I do to make all children feel part of our class.

Working together is a big part of our philosophy that values each child as a member of our class. Working cooperatively helps everyone feel part of the class. Our main goal is to model how to be a friend and how friends can act toward each other.

Consistency and structure is the best way for children with autism. It's a nice reminder that children with autism become very upset and frustrated when adults are inconsistent with them and when routines or schedules are disrupted. All our children can participate in some way playing and learning together.

I would like to share with you about our daily activities. For example, kinetic sand play is a fun group activity, and children can develop their sensory experience. Our children love books and reading time, and they share their experience with each other. It's not easy to be focused, however they just keep trying. All therapists help them in it.

I think that communication is the most important social skill of all, and our professional team teaches children how to ask for what they want or need verbally by using signs, gestures, words, combinations, and sentences.

I am sure that our pictures can give you ideas and positive thoughts about our learning style, fun activities, predictable daily routines, some opportunities to practice new and old skills, developing child's social skills, and helping every child to reach their educational goals.

Therapists and parents are thinking positively to continue to work together helping everyone feel part of our wonderful class.  

I would like to say our Donors the warmest words for their valuable support of our program.

Sincerely,

Tetyana Varenychenko, M.Ed,

Project Leader
