Thank you to Nora Roberts Foundation

12.21.21 Nora Roberts Foundation helps Crossroads with a grant.

Nora Roberts, best-selling and well-known author, supports children and education through her foundation. For the 3rd year in a row, the Nora Roberts Foundation has provided a grant to help our children learn and grow.
We love this quote found posted on the Nora Roberts Foundation’s website about literacy:

“Once you learn to read, you will be forever free.”
– Frederick Douglass

The grant, which was received here today, provides $3,000 for expenses in any of these areas – 1) Touch Math & LWT (curriculum), 2) Professional Development & Training, 3) Social Skills & PECS, 4) Healthy Food Program. We are thrilled, not only to have this funding but also to have earned the support of the Nora Roberts Foundation.

Nora Roberts Foundation Grant will help with Social Skills in 20-21!

Crossroads Center for Children is excited to announce a grant from The Nora Roberts Foundation to help our students learn social skills. 

The Nora Roberts Foundation has provided a $3,000 grant in support of the Social Skills Development programming at Crossroads! This generous gift will help our school greatly in the area of social skills in the 2020-21 school year, including work in the goals for communication and play. The grant will provide supplies and materials such as PECS (Picture Exchange Communication System) books, straps and insert pages, art supplies throughout the school year, student reinforcers, games, apps, and behavior reduction items. We are very thankful for this grant to help with the many needs we have at Crossroads.

Social Skills Development is an important area of life success and something that our students, overall, find difficult to learn and apply. Social impairment is one of three core deficits that make up a diagnosis of autism, and Crossroads has a large component of learners with ASD. Many of our students struggle with interactions, functional play, communication skills, and emotional comprehension, resulting in maladaptive behaviors that add even more layers of challenge to their lives. By starting children on the path of learning the concept of communication, and how to make their needs known, and by targeting social skills for improvement, Crossroads addresses individualized goals that will help throughout life.

Social skills are targeted in all classrooms and services here, so it’s critical to have the materials and supplies in place that will help students gain needed skills.

Crossroads Center for Children is excited to announce a new grant from The Nora Roberts Foundation!

The Nora Roberts Foundation has provided a $3,000 grant in support of the curricular programming at Crossroads! This generous gift will help our school greatly in the area of literacy and allow us to purchase needed resources for the 2019-20 school year, particularly in the area of Learning Without Tears and Learning A-Z.

Across the school, Crossroads uses curriculum to support the individual needs of the students in each class. Learning Without Tears and Touch Math have been used for the past several years, and Learning A-Z is a more recent addition to the program. As new students come to us, and as we keep pace with changes in our state’s learning standards, it is increasingly important to have the curricular materials and supplies in place that will help students gain needed skills.
