Arc Autism Corner Now Open!

Arc Autism Corner Now Open!

On Wednesday April 3, 2019 the Arc of Yates opened the Arc Autism Corner Activity and Resource Center. This was made possible by a generous grant received from The TRIPP Foundation. Over 150 staff and community members explored the activity room and tested out the various fidgets, lights and technology. John Hassett, OT at the Arc of Yates stated, “This room provides comfort and relaxation, with independence and the opportunity to explore.”
Ally Kimball, an adult on the spectrum, stated “I like the sensory room because I am fascinated by the patterns and bright colors. The music is calming and there are many interesting objects and playthings to use.”  

This resource is open to all members of the community and their families and is appointment based. If you would like to schedule your one on one Exploration Session please contact Deb Fabris-Coon at dfabriscoon@arcofyates.org or 315-414-1370. Additionally, there will be events every Wednesday in the month of April from 5pm-7pm. Check out the Arc of Yates Facebook page for more information at @arcofyates1.
