Open house at Chapel Haven

NEW HAVEN – Chapel Haven will hold an open house and tour for interested families from 5:30 to 7 p.m. May 11. 
A light dinner and refreshments will be provided.
Chapel Haven is located at 1040 Whalley Ave. (http://www.chapelhaven.org/). Participants can take part in guided tours of Chapel Haven's campus. Interested professionals and parents also will have the option of attending an evening workshop on social communication.
 Chapel Haven was founded in 1972 and provides a lifelong program of individualized support services for adults with cognitive and social disabilities, enabling them to live independent and productive lives. The May 11 open house will give participants the chance to tour two of Chapel Haven's transitional programs – the REACH program for adults with mild developmental disabilities and autism and the Asperger's Syndrome Adult Transition (ASAT) program.

In addition, Chapel Haven will offer a free workshop entitled "Social Communication Interventions: In the Classroom, the Therapy Room and at the Mall, "presented by Ginny Hodge, M.A., CCC-SLP and Vice President of Autism Spectrum Programming at Chapel Haven. For many children, adolescents and young adults on the autism spectrum, social communication challenges are the core of their difficulties in school and transition. This workshop will explore how social communication interventions and instruction can help individuals succeed in a variety of settings.

RSVPs are required by calling Connie Brand, Associate Director of Admissions and Marketing, cbrand@chapelhaven.org, 203-397-1714, X111 by Monday, May 9, 2011. To learn more about Chapel Haven, log onto http://www.chapelhaven.org/.
