Spectrum Blue for Autism Awareness Month
At Spectrum Services, we’ve been so very busy the first half of Autism Awareness Month implementing Remote Learning Plans for our students. Now, our students have remote lessons with their teachers; interacting with them, talking to them, and learning from them right on their computer, laptop, or iPad, and all from the comfort and safety of their own home.
Our physical and occupational therapists, speech pathologists, and clinical team are all interacting with our students and their families.
It certainly wasn’t the way we expected to spend the first half of Autism Awareness Month, as we had other plans; we’re sure you did, too.
Autism Awareness Month Drive
Spectrum Services planned to host a number of events in April, including our annual Autism Awareness Pour & Tour Dinner and Auction. Each April, these events support our life-changing programs for children with autism, which include:
- Filling the funding gap of our Community-Based Services. This vital program supports young children 18 months to 4 years old with developmental delays, bringing much needed services right to their homes. We do not receive enough state and local funding to fully provide this service.
- Support opening a new Pre-School classroom this September in our Kingston School, in response to the growing need for programs for younger children with autism
You Can Help
Although our events were cancelled for April, there are a number of ways you can help us meet the needs of our students and their families, as well as assist us in meeting the unexpected costs of providing remote learning for students, and support for their families.
