Meet the Scianna family

December 06, 2018

We have just one week left in our campaign! If you're considering giving, but wondering where exactly your dollars will go, meet the Scianna family. Their friendship and support has been invaluable to The Children's Center. Learn why they believe in The Children's Center, and why they think you should too.

 

Every dollar donated to our Find a Voice | FUND a Voice campaign goes directly to the Scianna Family Children's Center for Communication and Development Blair Scianna Memorial Endowment, which was established to help ensure that The Children's Center is able to continue doing life-changing work in Southern Mississippi.

 

Thanks so much!

Bravo!

Adaptive switches are one of the ways our children who are non-verbal or who have significant language delays are able to communicate. Phrases are programmed into a large round "button" and our children press the button when they want to say that phrase.

1 Month Hippotherapy - 1 Child

At The Children's Center, we partner with Purposeful Refuge to provide hippotherapy (think horses, not hippos) for the children at The Center who can benefit from it. This type of therapy helps encourage the use of language or other forms of communication, as well as exercising important motor skills, all while having a whole lot of fun!

1 PODD Book

We use a special kind of book (PODD book) as a form of communication for our children who are non-verbal or have language delays.
