Thanksgiving event 2017- Thank you all !

Thanks you all for you support and help! This years our Thanksgiving feast was a great success. We served over 45 individuals with disabilities to a wonderful Thanksgiving feast. Turkey, stuffing, ham, mash potatoes and all the fixings! There were a lot of smiling faces and it was a honor to be able to serve them. We had some extra help from our craft young woman and the support of St James CCD crew. Take a look at some of the photos

This year, remember to be truly Thankful, God bless you all.

Parent Group is almost here!

Ok Folks its finally time !

 

Our first parent group meeting its almost here!  – I would Like to make this more of a meet and greet, maybe look to the direction of where you all would like this to move in.

 

I’m very excited and proud to say, I have the commitment from two of my past Someone Special Needs you buddies to moderate the meetings ( time flies)- I have always been amazed how SSNY seemed to make a difference in the direction of our buddies lives. Alyssa and Krissy are sisters with impressive backgrounds with knowledge in the special needs community. I have attached a short bio on each of them.

 

We are leaning on a Friday October 27 day meeting – there is also a possibility of a Saturday or Sunday but I often find that its easier for parents to get away during the day during the week – we could also have a evening meeting in the future.

 

Times-  10am to 11:00am or 1-2:30pm if you could email me at my work email vincentscanelli@allstate.com

Parent Group !

with the preferred time and if you could attend that would be great

 

Thanks again

Vince

 

 

 

Alyssa Cantin-Giles Bio:

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and psychotherapist, with experience providing individual and group therapy to children, adolescents and adults, couples and families. I graduated from Wake Forest University, and have my Master’s Degree in Social Work from New York University. Currently I am completing my dissertation for my PhD in Clinical Social Work at Fordham University. My experience with at-risk children and adolescents, adults and families in various settings has provided me with a strong foundation in utilizing cognitive-behavioral therapy techniques to elicit change and foster growth within the individual, while maintaining a strength-based approach. Along with general mental health, I have a special interest in the field of disabilities as well as maternal health (e.g., miscarriage, IVF) and school-based concerns. I strive to provide a safe and comfortable environment for my clients, with treatment tailored to their unique needs.

 

Krissy Cantin Garside bio: 

I am currently an Industrial and Systems Engineering PhD student with a Biomedical Option at Virginia Tech. In pursuit of my doctoral degree, I completed my Master of Engineering degree in May 2016. I am conducting my dissertation research on pattern recognition and health monitoring in autism spectrum disorder, funded by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), the National Science Foundation (NSF), and two Virginia-based grants. I am specifically researching the perspectives of caregivers of people with ASD and self-injurious behavior, and potential methods to monitor and predict this behavior. Prior to the start of my doctoral program, I graduated Wake Forest University with a double major in Physics and Psychology.  I conducted my Honors Psychology Program research on the effects of pink noise on children with autism, and I continued this research after graduation. I created and ran dance programs in the Winston-Salem community for people with ASD and Down syndrome, which originally began in Colts Neck after being heavily involved as a buddy Mr. Vincent Scanelli’s “Someone Special Needs You.
