Good News Friday!

We have amazing employees at Imagine!. Let me share just one reason why.

On Wednesday, February 22, Imagine! Behavioral Health Services (IBHS) hosted its latest Social Skills Session. The February 22 session was for children ages 3-7, and all participants had the opportunity to enjoy play activities that enabled attending and orienting themselves toward a play partner, eye contact, waiting and sharing skills, and opportunities for natural interactions with other group participants and typical peers. The session was facilitated by Dr. Laurie Sperry, a BCBA-D with expertise in social skills curricula and intervention.

These sessions are vital to supporting the developmental needs of these children, but resources for this type of service aren’t available through traditional funding sources. So how were these sessions funded? Through regular payroll deductions as part of Imagine!’s employee giving campaign.

That’s right. Imagine! employees, who already do very difficult and challenging work for wages that are often well below what they really deserve, are still willing to dig into their own pockets to help support programs and projects that enable Imagine! to do so much more when it comes to creating a world of opportunity for all abilities. I thank them for their continued commitment to our mission.
