Continue the Celebration with us!
We are creating our very own Awareness/Celebration Month in February appropriately called "We Love Our C.I.T.Y." Throughout the year, some families participate in various "awareness months" that recognize a particular diagnosis and the community who support them. We are very aware not all of our families have this opportunity due to having a less-common or unknown diagnosis. "We Love Our C.I.T.Y." will acknowledge and celebrate ALL children receiving therapy services and their families, emphasizing our common connections and supportive community within the general public.
In order for this initiative to be successful, we are depending on participation from different offices, clinics, and schools in the area. In the coming days, an important Google Form will be posted, and professionals will be encouraged to sign-up for opportunities on a first-come, first-served basis. Parents, please help us spread the word to your therapy centers, as we hope everyone will participate!
We will be sharing more specific information about this initiative shortly via email, social media posts, and on our website. We hope you will see "We Love Our C.I.T.Y." as an opportunity to increase our community's visibility, awareness, understanding, and compassion at a local level, while celebrating ALL children in therapy and their families.

Meet Evelyn! Her family received a sensory-friendly family photo session this past month with Something Blue Photography, courtesy of C.I.T.Y. of Support. Her proud mom says:
"Evie is one sweet and strong toddler! Despite her developmental challenges, she has been working successfully with PT to improve her balance, coordination, and strength. Just in time for our big move to a new house in the suburbs, Evie mastered walking foot over foot up the stairs! This was a huge step forward, and we are so proud of her accomplishment."
