Community Outreach and Support
Through community outreach and support programs, The Johnson Center supports and informs the community regarding all aspects of developmental disorders. These events include webinars, classes, conferences, trainings, support groups, and fun events for children in our area.
Some annual events include:
Back to School Bash – a fun, frolicking way to beat the heat and gear up for school. Past events included a drum circle, kids’ band, bounce house, rock star photo booth, bubble machines, ring toss games, arts and crafts, and more.
Halloween Hoot – children are invited to practice their trick-or-treating at our offices and join us for some fun and games. Paint-the-pumpkin, a cupcake walk, costume contests, arts and crafts, and ‘spooky’ sensory activities are some of the entertainments.
Holiday Celebration – Santa Claus joins us so that families have a no-stress opportunity to get a treasured photo of their child with the jolly man himself. Fun holiday games and treats are always a part of this great tradition.
Valentine’s Day Party – Cupid fires his bow, and our office is the site for a fun-filled Valentine’s celebration. Delicious snacks, arts and crafts, and special valentines make this a great way to celebrate.
Drum Circles - Several times throughout the year we host drum circles. These events are a fun way to encourage children’s creativity in a group setting, and provide an opportunity for social interaction in a relaxed environment. Our drum circles are led by a music therapist with extensive experience in working with people with special needs.
