Social Skills Assessment and Training - My son Nicholas is ten years old and in the fourth grade with inclusion support. Here in California there is the Regional Center system where both my children are consumers, due to being on the Autism Spectrum. The Regional Center will fund respite, therapies and social groups for families. Nicholas had his assessment back in October 2004, which was funded through the Regional Center, as well as the weekly sessions. Funding can be done on a yearly basis or six months; it depends on the subject being funded. The feeding therapy for Matthew is on an annual basis, as is the respite funding. All this is written into the Individual Program Plan known as the IPP for each consumer through the Regional Center. By Bonnie Sayers

"We each have our own way of living in the world, together we are like a symphony.
Some are the melody, some are the rhythm, some are the harmony
It all blends together, we are like a symphony, and each part is crucial.
We all contribute to the song of life."
...Sondra Williams

We might not always agree; but TOGETHER we will make a difference.
