  Touching All The Senses

June 2017  
Hello from the President,

Thank you to everyone who donated so we could update our sensory room with a wonderful new piece called an interactive sensory ladder.  It only took a few months to raise the money due to everyone's generosity.  The ladder was installed a couple weeks ago and the initial reaction from the kids has been very positive.  We are working to get some pictures posted on our Facebook Page soon, so be on the lookout.

The board is now in Golf Tournament mode as we prepare for our 6th Annual Golf Tournament.  Please see the article below for more information and to register.  We are always looking for sponsors and golfers, so if you are interested in being a part of the event this year or you would like more information, please contact Ana Chuey at anac@specialhaven.org.

It has been so amazing to be a part of Special Haven.  We are looking to updating our room over the next 12 months so be on the lookout for updates as they happen.  Thank you all for your continued support.

Autism Awareness with Special Haven

PTO board member, Shawna, learned about Special Haven and along with another board member, Theresa, they reached out to Special Haven to see if they could help. The date for the presentation worked out and Special Haven agreed to help. The PTO was also doing an autism t-shirt fundraiser and their plan was to donate part of the fundraising proceeds to a non-profit organization, and Special Haven was chosen to receive the donation,  Learn more  
Looking for a Massage Therapist
by: Brandon Roberts
This is a great explanation of the work I do with the kiddos at Special Haven written by my mentor and coach in the Chiropractic pediatric world Dr. Tony Ebel.

"There are three main things sensory and spectrum kids struggle with - calming down, connection, and coordination.  It's known now that subluxation (spinal/nervous system stress) leaves their nervous system stuck in a state of sympathetic (gas pedal) dominance, and thus constantly wound up.  If it can't
