Park Ridge Elementary school of Stafford, Virginia is very excited to join the Cooking Autism community! They are the newest recipients of our life-skills cooking program grant! Wowza!
This team of extraordinary educators will support three special education classrooms for children with autism. We had the pleasure to work with their speech language pathologist (SLP), Carrie, at Conway Elementary School in the 2017/18 school year, and we are very pleased to see her involvement at Park Ridge. Carrie joins SLP Sara Rodrigues and team. What a treat!
These superhero teachers are off to give their students the very best opportunities of growth. They will have the ability to help their students improve upon important life-skills; such as, fine motor skills, asking and answering questions, sequencing, following written and verbal directions, advocating desires and needs, table manners and more. We look forward to hearing of their success stories. We will keep you updated.
