Roosevelt Children's Center receives grant to purchase a bounce house

Roosevelt Children’s Center was the recipient of a 2015 grant from the Arc of Wayne Foundation for the purchase of a bounce house.

One of RCC’s Special Education Teachers who teaches one of the most challenging groups of students at RCC provided the following feedback: (Most of her students are diagnosed on the Austism Spectrum with severe delays in language, social skills and an inability to effectively engage with adults and/or other children.)

“With this bounce house, I see affect in my kids on the spectrum and real happiness and excitement as they bounce and get that motor and movement input. I also see increased eye contact with peers in the bounce house and the ability to tolerate kids in their “space” much better than usual. I hear verbalizations and get more communication, gestural and/or verbal, when they want to go back into the bounce house, and learn to sit with an adult and wait or go to another activity until someone comes out. Lots of good stuff happens!”
