Updates to Parent Communication
We are updating our parent communication system. Remind will be used as an one way announcement system, rather than a back and forth messaging platform. The new Remind inbox will not be monitored, and the old Remind classes will be deleted.
We ask that you communicate with your BCBA and treatment team via email moving forward. For any time sensitive matters, please call the center directly. To join the new Remind class, follow the directions below. Please note that there is a separate class for Brighton and Burton, so choose the correct one.
ALL CAREGIVERS NEED TO JOIN ONE OF THESE NEW REMIND GROUPS. Our old groups will be archived, and parents will not receive messages through those groups.
To join the Burton Remind group, you can text @strivebu to 81010.
To join the Brighton Remind group, you can text @scfa to 81010.
Autism Alliance of Michigan Hero Walk
The AAOM was instrumental in getting the mandate passed which requires insurers to pay for ABA services, and they continue their support for individuals with autism through a variety of efforts.
Please consider joining us at the Hero Walk on Saturday, September 17th at the Detroit Zoo if you're able. It's a fun event for the entire family, and once you've registered for the walk (for a fee of $10 per person) you can attend the walk and stay and explore the zoo all day. The registration fee covers parking as well.
If you'd like to purchase tickets, you may do so here (and when asked for a team to attribute your donation to, please search for Strive Center.)
If you're unable to attend, but would like to make a donation to the AAOM, please donate here and search Strive Center as the team to attribute your donation.
We hope to see you there!
