Strive Center for Autism - October 22, 2021
We are planning a snack of cider and donuts for that day, please contact your BCBA if your child isn't able to eat or drink those. We always offer children their snack sent from home as well, and if you'd like to send something special (like a gluten free donut) that day, we are happy to provide that for your child during the party.
Please welcome Tamara!

Welcome back to Brighton, Megan!
We are also happy to pass out treats for the whole group, if parents would like to bring them, but it isn't required. If you are interested in bringing a snack for the group, we ask that you check in with your BCBA a few weeks ahead of time, in order to plan for any allergies or dietary restrictions. We can help you come up with something that everyone can eat, or we can speak to any families with restrictions to ensure that they pack a special treat for their child that day.
If your child has allergies or restrictions, you can also send in a package of special treats for us to keep on hand for these special days. We are happy to store something that can be kept in the freezer or fridge and provided just when needed.
Strive VIP Day
Strive is having their first ever Very Important Person (VIP) event! This will take place the week of Thanksgiving, during the therapy day for about 30 minutes. VIP day is for the children to invite a person that is very important to them to show them around the center, spend some time together, and do a little activity together. VIP time is for anyone that is important to the child. This could include a parent that doesn't get to spend much time in the center, a grandparent, aunt, uncle or any other special person! We plan to have a few VIP days a year moving forward, but for this first VIP day, we ask that the children invite 1 person to limit the number of people in the center. More details are coming soon, but start thinking of who a good VIP for your child would be!
