My Day to Play

My Day to Play at MDM - a special program for children on the Autism Spectrum

Please join us for “My Day to Play,” a program designed to provide children on the autism spectrum with a safe, comfortable environment to explore and to give families who face similar challenges a place to connect. The program was developed by lead volunteer Rosalyn Fisher, a retired occupational therapist experienced in working with children on the spectrum, and MDM’s director of education, Trudi Plummer.
