Parking Lot Protocol
Burton families, you will love Megan - she is so creative that every child loves working with her! Please show your children her picture below and let them know she'll be in Burton on Monday.
Brighton families, don't worry, she'll be back!
And a big thank you to Megan for helping out this way - she definitely is an asset to our team!
Policy Reminder - Extra change of clothes
With the change in seasons, we will look through the clothes at the centers now, and send home anything that's not warm enough for fall, or looks like it may be too small.
We realize that two changes of clothes may seem like a lot, but we want your child to remain comfortable and clean, no matter the situation.
When clothes are soiled, we will send them home in a plastic bag, and we request that you provide a replacement on your child's next therapy day. If you're unsure what clothes we have for your child, feel free to ask - and parents are welcome to come in the building to see what we have. You can ask to check on your child's clothing when you come in for an observation, or any day.
Today, we'd like to highlight two books, one for adults and one to share with children.
For adults, Ten Things Every Child with Autism Wishes You Knew by Ellen Notbohm is a great introductory book for anyone who wants to understand Autism better. This book is good for parents, or teachers, or any family member to gain some insight.
For children, My Friend has Autism by Amanda Tourville is a simple, short book that includes facts about Autism and talks about being a good friend to a boy with Autism. This might be a good book to share with siblings of children with Autism, with a classroom, or with extended family who want to help their children understand children with Autism better.
We'll share two more books next week, but feel free to ask your BCBA anytime for more recommendations.
