Rosenberg TX – January 20, 2016 – The Harry S & Isabel C Cameron Foundation awarded a $5,000 grant to the Children Center for Autism. The funds will be used towards replacing old rusty and outdated playground equipment for the 2-5 year olds in Texana’s autism program.
. “Many children diagnosed with autism do not acquire play skills like their peers. The playground and all of its learning opportunities are very important for all children. Our goal is for children diagnosed with autism to be able to play alongside their peers, use the equipment appropriately, engage in appropriate socials skills, and have fun! The new playground will allow us to teach the children how to swing, go up and down a slide, follow instructions, play games with their friends, form friendships, and be active. With this grant, we are moving closer to being able to purchase a new and more appropriate play structure, we couldn’t be more pleased”, commented Ellen Catoe, Manager, Children’s Center fo Autism.
