Wrightslaw Training

Pat Howry gave us some good ideas that had many parents talking about what they could do to help their child and other children in the area. Several requested a return trip by the people of Wrightslaw! Thank you to Bayview Hospital for giving us space to hold the training, CBAA for being a sponsor and the many participants who attended.

Wrights Law From Emotion to Advocacy

In From Emotions to Advocacy training programs (one day, 6 hours), parent advocate Pat Howey teaches you how to take an active role in managing your child's special education, the gentle art of disagreeing, and how to maintain healthy working relationships with the school.

You will learn:

how to assess your child's strengths and needs
how to prepare a Parent Report for the IEP team
how to build healthy working relationships with school personnel
how to document information that may prevent or resolve disputes
how to participate as an equal member of your child's IEP team
Wrightslaw programs are designed to meet the needs of parents, educators, health care providers, advocates and attorneys who represent children with disabilities regarding special education. The program is not disability specific.

ASRC Third Annual Talent Show

The third annual ASRC Talent Show was held on Saturday, August 2. Organized by ASRC Program Director Monica Jimenez Brown, the talent show gave individuals with autism, the opportunity to display their abilities. Some of the performances included dancing, singing, a magic show, skits about turtles, music instruments, and a martial arts demonstration. Participants received a certificate at the end of the showcase. The talent show continues to be one of the most asked about events at ASRC. Congratulations to all who participated!

July 2014 Highlights

The month of July concluded the ASRC Fun in the Sun summer activities. Families met on Tuesday mornings, to play games outside, at a local park. Kickball, kite flying, and frisbee tossing, were just some of the fun activities the children enjoyed, as parents conversed with each other.
The activities were also on Thursday evenings, to allow working parents and caregivers to bring their families, to participate in games such as balloon badminton, basketball, Nerf Tag, and ball toss.
The Fun in The Sun activities closed with a meal that was enjoyed by all. Thank you to all of the ASRC families who attended and participated.

The end of July brought another book fair. The ASRC book fair was held at Barnes & Noble, and featured community story time readers, parent volunteers, and superheroes from Texas Toyz. A local news station also stopped by to interview me, and take pictures of ASRC staff giving a thumbs up! The proceeds from the book fair go towards the ASRC library, a wonderful resource for classrooms, parents, educators, and individuals with autism, and their families.
Thank you to everyone who helped make this book fair a success!
