Letter to Donors!
We always appreciate your support and would like to share with you our story.
We have a small center, where preschool children come to receive speech, occupational, physical and social play therapy.
We work closely with the parents of these children and provide them strategies and techniques to assist them in understanding their children's needs and supporting carryover of skills learned in therapy to their home and other preschool environments.
Some of our children have been asked to leave traditional day care and preschool centers due to their disruptive behavior or inability to learn in this setting. Many of our children come from bilingual homes, where the challenges for these children are great. We have therapist specializing in English, Russian, and sign language.
Children with autism often become upset and frustrated when adults are inconsistent with them and when routines or schedules are disrupted. We provide structure and consistency, which are vital for a child to learn. All our children are supported and can participate and learn in this small safe environment. They are learning to use signs, sounds, and words to play and request with their friends and families. They are also learning how to manage their behavior in a group so they can return to a school setting or just attend family functions.
Currently 1 in 68 children is estimated to be on the autism spectrum. These children are often very intelligent. They require a different path to learn. We are here for them, and with your help we can continue to provide needed materials for the children and their families.
We invite you to look at our center and the children at play on our Facebook page: facebook.com/penndco
We invite you to support a child with your donation.
We thank you for your help.
