Thank You To All Our Donors!
Sensory experience counts!
I am writing to express my deepest thanks for your valuable donations to Pennsylvania Diversity Children’s Organization. Your support has played a key role in child’s success to reach the goals. Building interaction and language skills for children with autism spectrum disorder or social communication difficulties is our main step in our program.
Our children successfully finished 2015-2016 school year, and they started a new school year with their new goals to participate in our social skills program. We asked our children about their favorite games, toys, sensory activities, and books and about their preferences. We got the best answers and the best pointing to pictures, objects, and toys. Alexis answered: I like all books. Ari pointed to all letters and his favorite activity: Alphabooks. Ilya wanted to play with the trucks. Michael touched kinetic sand and used a sign “thank you”. Alina liked the feeling of pressure on her body and brush therapy. Justin enjoyed his sensory activity by playing with water beads. Alina gave her peer the best eye contact.
I am sure that you know the terms associated with “autism spectrum disorder”: pervasive developmental disorder, autism, Asperger syndrome, hyperlexia or semantic pragmatic disorder. No matter what label has been given to our child, we always remember that he or she is a unique individual with his or her own strengths, interests, preferences, and challenges.
We hope that all our donors will continue to support our program. We appreciate your cooperation.
