DT

[I] make no pretense of being the last word on the subject of autistic children. …more appropriate to call it one of the first words.

Odds and Ends

Cupcakes!

Happy Halloween!

To celebrate Halloween, we had a pumpkin picking party this year. Clients got to pick up pumpkins and place them in a basket. This was fun for all and also good exercise because they worked on stretching their backs, arms, legs, and bending their knees and hips, etc.  We also had music, face painting, and Taylor Wimberly made 150 delicious Halloween-themed cupcakes!

Social Dance

Rimland has contracted a two-person ensemble called Jutta and the Hi-Dukes to work with the clients in social dance sessions at the Developmental Training Center (DT) on Mondays and Wednesdays. Jutta and the Hi-Dukes teach cultural dances from all over the world.

Dancing like no one is watching.

All clients and classes are welcome to participate and really enjoy the dancing. It’s a great way to get exercise, listen to music, and have fun together.
