Our Early Intensive Behavioral Intervention [EIBI] Program just marked four years at The Children’s Center. To celebrate, we took our Pre-K kids on the field trip of a lifetime to the Play Place for Autistic Children.

Our friends from Just Because We Care sponsored the event and accompanied our families and kids, along with behavior techs from our Center. For three hours, our kids participated in all sorts of fun, social activities.


From tickling their senses to playing rhythm and melodies and performing sing-a-longs, our kids enjoyed an environment where they could be themselves and have a blast with other kids.

For many families, this was the first field trip they had ever experienced. Our parents had such a wonderful time seeing their children enjoy a community setting. Some were even in tears because it was their only successful social experience with their child.


At the end of the day, our parents were so thankful to our Center and the Just Because We Care Foundation. When the group departed all of the kids were wiped out and fell asleep on the bus. To cap off a perfect day, just as they were about to leave one child asked, “When is the next field trip?”

Want to sponsor an outing? Our kids would be so grateful. Please contact Marletta Boyd, II at mboydii@thechildrenscenter.com.
