MECC Students, Staff Blow Bubbles for Autism AwarenessTo support National Autism Awareness Month, Mason Early Childhood Center teachers and students joined together on April 18 to spread awareness and acceptance for those on the autism spectrum. The school hosted a Bubbles for Autism Day where students and staff waved bubble wands in the air and blew boatloads of bubbles!

Teachers brought their classes outside for bubble blowing - providing students time to meet new friends from other classes. 

"This was a wonderful opportunity for MECC students to have fun, playful interactions with classmates they may not have known. There are no barriers with bubbles. Speech and occupational therapists sometimes use bubbles in their treatment plans, and most kids love bubbles. Adults do too!" said Melissa Bly, MECC Principal.

Each MECC teacher participating in the event chose two videos about autism to share with their class. Videos included a Sesame Street & Autism focus, as well as Marvelous Max - Autism Awareness for Kids.

"Today was an amazing day at MECC," shared SCSF intervention specialist Janine Schatz. "All the students gained awareness of Autism and engaged in a simple activity that brought us all together. It was definitely a Mason Moment!"
