    June is a transition month and we all know how hard transitions can be for our kids. Schedules are disrupted by a multitude of events meant to be an enjoyable way to mark the end of another academic year, but for kids on the spectrum and their families, often end up being stressful and disappointing. When we place an expectation of our child on the spectrum reacting to so many changes and noisy gatherings like their neurotypical peers we set them up for failure. So pick and choose which activities they should attend. It's OK to leave them at home with a respite provider so you can attend important events for their siblings and if you lack a provider, divide & conquer. In today's tech savvy world you can always video or go live on facebook so the at home parent can see the event in real time! 

That being said, I want to encourage you all to look at the Events we have for the summer. Remember that when you come to our events they're a no judgement zone and you have the support of the Center community should you experience a difficult  moment or hour. Connecting with others you can always leave siblings with a friend and give your child on the spectrum a break if need be! BTDT.

We know that the Ramblewild event is on Father's Day but what better way to celebrate than to enjoy a day together in an activity that will build self confidence, bond you together as a team and make memories for  a lifetime ?  The price at $10 /pp is deeply discounted. Regular admission to the adventure park is $49/pp under age 12 and $57/pp ages 12 and older.  This is the opportunity of a lifetime! Kids must be aged 7 and 55 inches and all people participating must be under 265 lbs. Family members who do not wish to partake of the aerial elements are free. 

Our Superhero Raffle drawing has begun wth 5 winners already announced.  Take a look at what the prizes are. It's not too late to jump in and take a chance!
You can purchase your chance to win 25 times here. Good Luck!!

 In addition to all the Summer Events posted on the website, we are also planning the third annual day at Great Wolf Lodge for September. watch for details !

Have a great week !
