Burton Hair Cut Workshop
Bring your child to come get a haircut from a professional hair stylist in a calm, familiar environment at the center. Leading up to the workshop, Evey can help you during parent training sessions to help work on desensitizing your child to the hair cut process and build up some skills to support the process. During the workshop, Evey will be there to help support and coach both you and the hair stylist to best cater to your child.

When: November 7th, 9am-12pm
How: Contact Evey via Remind or email at firstname.lastname@example.org and she will book your spot
Cost: $20 per child
COMING SOON TO BRIGHTON, TOO!
TheraWe Platform Coming Soon
We are excited to announce that we will begin using the TheraWe platform in the near future. TheraWe is a mobile app that provides a bridge for better therapy session updates, personal training videos, and navigating the entire pediatric therapy journey.
Specifically, it will:
Enable your therapy provider to send you (and your entire family) video updates and visual home training instructions in a HIPAA-compliant way
Allow you to chat questions and transmit videos of behaviors from home after your therapy session
Create a video therapy record that will reduce the risk of regression when switching organizations and/or entering the school system
We believe this approach will lead to improved child outcomes and a more inclusive day-to-day experience for your entire family team.
Coming soon, you will receive more information about how to sign up and access your TheraWe account, as well as training on how to maximize it. If you’d like to learn more, please watch this short video or visit https://www.theraweconnect.com/
Friday End Time 2:20
The purpose behind this is to ensure that only healthy individuals are in our building at all times. When children attend therapy with "just a cold" our staff catch that cold too. When our staff have any symptoms on our daily health screening, they end up either going for a COVID test or missing many days of work while we wait to ensure they are safe to return.
We definitely want to maximize your child's hours in treatment, but we need to do so only when they are healthy. Please help us out by abiding by the 72 hours symptom free requirement for any illness. We are absolutely not counting these absences "against" you in any way.
