The Brevard Center participated in the annual Autism Awareness Festival on November 13 at Florida Tech in Melbourne. Staffing the CIP table were Ross, Zach, Peter Snell, Moultrie Woodall and Wellness Coordinator Jamie Kennedy. Sponsored by the Space Coast Early Intervention Center, the event hosted 500 attendees and provided information about resources available to families dealing with Autism Spectrum Disorders.
Career Coordinator Jennifer Kolarik was a presenter at a workshop at Florida Tech’s Scott Center for Autism Treatment on “Preparing High School Students and Young Adults with Asperger’s Syndrome for Success in College.”
Brevard’s Student Senate sponsored the annual Halloween Party on October 30. New this year was a raffle featuring some fabulous prizes. Student Senate members offered to provide winners with special services, such as washing dishes and cooking meals, and with homemade baked goods.
David Friedland finished first in his age group in the 15K Space Coast Classic Run on November 6. Congratulations, Dave!
