December 2012


On the 2nd Saturday of the month, Facing Autism Together Everyday (FATE) met at the Just Jump for Kids in Douglas, Georgia for the monthly FATE meeting. The event began at 9:00 A.M. and ended at 11:00 A.M. During this meeting, Jeannie Bolstridge worked on getting the Social Prompter app that is being made by Georgia Tech. students onto their devices.

On Dec. 9, a fire damaged the building of the Central United Methodist Church (CUMC) in Fitzgerald, Georgia where Sensory Friendly Learning (SFL) Inc. provided free, after-school tutoring.

On Dec, 14, Jeannie Bolstridge and Brittany Ammons went to the CUMC for the first time since the fire to see what all was damaged. Thankfully, many of the beautiful tutoring books were in good condition. A truckload of nonprofit supplies were unharmed and removed from the building and later brought to the garage of Kim Duckworth for storage.

Jeannie continued work on both the podcasts and the Social Prompter app.

The thought of summer tutoring for children on the spectrum or those with ADHD or Dyslexia in my opinion is very crucial. Because of this, I decided to dedicate a complete blog post  to the importance and logistics of creating a summer program.summer tutoring session
