Strive Center for Autism - March 26, 2021
Handwriting Without Tears
One approach we use in our clinics is a program called Handwriting Without Tears. This fun and engaging program teaches children to master handwriting early, for more success in school.
As each of our children's learning programs are individualized, some of the children began this program some time ago, and some are just beginning now. If you have questions about when your child will begin this program, reach out to your BCBA. This is just one of many things we do that help our children become successful writers.

April is approaching fast
In April, our theme is Pond Life. We'll talk about what a pond is, and the animals and insects that live near a pond. Many of our children planted seeds during March's dramatic play, and we'll continue to plant more in April and watch them grow into May. We'll learn about what seeds are and see how they change into plants.
