Strive Center for Autism - May 7, 2021

Bugs are everywhere!

May's theme is insects, and the kids are loving it! We've got toy bugs to catch and inspect, and in both centers we have caterpillars that are now in cocoons, and we are anxiously awaiting our butterflies!

BHCOE Accreditation Update

We are awaiting the results for our Behavioral Health Center of Excellence accreditation, and the evaluators have reached out to us to explain that the last component needed to finalize our results is interviews with families and staff. If you have been contacted by the BHCOE, please consider responding for an interview. The interviews are relatively short in length, and are a necessary component for the BHCOE to confirm some of the details we've shared with them. Thank you for your help!

Summer Plans

Please remember to let your BCBA know if you have any plans to miss therapy during the summer. Summer is right around the corner! Both centers will be closed for therapy on the following dates this summer:

Monday, May 31 - Memorial Day

Friday, June 25 - Professional Development Day

Monday, July 5 - Independence Day

Friday, August 27 - Professional Development Day

We will add reminders to the newsletter as these dates approach, but just thought they'd be helpful for summer planning now.

Both centers will be closed for Memorial Day - enjoy the long weekend!
