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.
Welcome, baby Milobar!
We are pleased to announce that Jessica, our amazing BCBA in Burton, gave birth to a healthy baby girl, Zoe, on August 26th! Mom and baby are doing great.
Amy Hund will be covering for Jessica while she's on maternity leave. You can reach Amy through TheraWe, via email at email@example.com, or at 810-344-8082 ext. 2. Amy is reaching out to families to ensure that parent trainings continue as planned, but please feel free to reach out for anything you need!
Staff Picnic - PD Day
We treated our staff to an amazing picnic on our recent Professional Development day! A big thank you to Don and Anne Haley for hosting, and treating us to delicious pizza and other treats.
We believe that it's important for our team to have positive interactions outside of work to build relationships that carry over into the work place. We enjoyed cornhole, we made bracelets and tie dye shirts, and completed some great team building activities.
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!
