Halloween Party Marks the REC’s 2nd Anniversary!

This past weekend we opened our doors to local families for our Annual Halloween Party! Not only were we excited to celebrate such a fun and “spirited” holiday, but the party also marked the REC’s 2nd Anniversary!

It is hard to believe that just 2 years ago the REC dream took flight. What started as an idea has turned into one of the Boston area’s most unique center based programs for children and adolescents with special needs and Autism. We are so fortunate to be a part of the community and what better way to celebrate than with a FREE event for the whole family?!

Costumes, pumpkins, treats, face-painting, balloon masterpieces and more! Each child received a goody bag and went door-to-door as Team REC handed out treats! It was a great way to practice Trick-or-Treating in our safe and controlled setting. REC Program Coordinators also provided Halloween themed Social Stories and Visual Cues.

Thanks for celebrating with us (if you missed it, make sure to save the date for next year)!

What a Week!

REC Staffers had a blast prepping and participating in two great events this week. The first event was our FREE Parent Workshop on Autism and Insurance. We had a great group of parents and the presenters, Amy Weinstock and Terri Farrell from the Massachusetts Autism Insurance Resource Center, shared great information. We learned a ton about ARICA and even received some great insider tips and details about upcoming changes due to the Affordable Care Act. Parents even walked away with customized cupcakes to bring home, along with other yummy treats! If you missed the Workshop, please feel free to contact the Insurance Resource Center directly: info@disabilityinfo.org or (781) 642-0248.

Did you attend the Walk Now For Autism Speaks event this past Sunday, October 6th? The REC was in attendance and we were hard to miss at the resource fair! Chances are you either saw one of our green balloons floating around or our green sweatshirts keeping attendees warm post-walk. Additionally, REC Staffers had a blast giving out prizes to families that participated in REC Plinko! For more information on the walk please visit http://www.walknowforautismspeaks.org.

Below are some picture highlights from the events. Check out our calendar to see what is happening next!
