My Place to Be is a non-profit organization. Our goal is to help children navigate through the Social World and encourage them to learn in their own unique way. We encourage all children to learn self-awareness skills, giving social emotional tools to help children learn self-regulation, which in return gives kids a positive self-esteem. My Place To Be works with all children and has had much success with Autism Spectrum Disorders, ADHD, and mood disorders.
We give the child and their family a place to belong. To be accepted in a nonjudgemental way. We are parents who have been there and know what it is like to not be accepted or your child not accepted in traditional programs because of their uniqueness.
My Place To Be is run by families that participate. Each family plays an important role in its operation. We use a co-op approach that depends on many members to volunteer. To provide a varied range of classes for each age/developmental level we need family participation. We request all of our families to participate in some capacity to create a cohesive learning environment. The co-op approach also gives families an opportunity to grow and develop from other's experience the more we can get together as parents and support each other in the development of our community.
My Place To Be is a program that focuses on whole child development and family support. Our goals are to help children find their way in the social world. We look at every child's strengths and allow them to develop their skills by utilizing their talents.
