This year, some of our therapists at Orange County Speech Services attended and participated in “Family Autism Night” at Pretend City Children’s Museum. What a wonderful time we all had! We sang songs with the children, talked with parents about the significance of music in language development, met new families, and answered questions about pediatric therapy services.
Family Autism Night is a free autism resource for families in Orange County. This event (which takes place on the last Monday of each month) is a great opportunity for families with children of all ages to have fun in an autism friendly environment. This event is fun and beneficial for both children and their parents. It provides a supportive environment for children to play and explore while connecting parents with resources, specialists, encouragement, and new ideas.
We had such a great time partnering with Pretend City at this event, and we were so happy to connect with new families and provide a space for people to come for support.
We hope to see you there soon!
