Default 'Agricultural specialisterne': rural employment revolution for those with Autism

The subject of the last couple of posts has been on Autism-related events and organisations in the state of Connecticut.

The Kennedy Center Autism Project is a Trumbull, Connecticut-based nonprofit that provides social, recreational, educational, vocational, therapeutic, and residential services to individuals with various challenges, including Autism Spectrum Disorders. Their tailored programs help enable children with Autism Spectrum Disorders to become active members within their communities...

Children with autism have a couple of upcoming opportunities to have fun and get creative. Cooking and art classes are being offered in March and April through The Kennedy Center's Autism Project.

Both programs will be held at The Kennedy Center Children's Building, 4021 Main Street, Stratford.

Artworks will meet on six consecutive Tuesdays, from 6 to 7:30 p.m. beginning on Tuesday, March 3, through Tuesday, April 7. This hands-on program for children and teens provides a unique experience through art. Participants will explore different types of media, including drawing, painting and mixed media.

Cooking Kids will meet on six consecutive Thursdays, from 6 to 7:30 p.m. starting on Thursday, March 5, until Thursday, April 9. This new cooking program is geared to children of all ages and abilities with autism.

Its purpose is to develop cooking skills and make children feel comfortable in the kitchen. The course will teach kitchen safety, healthy eating habits, and a 'take home' cookbook. Recipes include all natural ingredients and gluten-free alternatives.

Contact Jessica Sachse ...to register for either class. Both classes cost $155 for the six-week session.

...In 2006, The Kennedy Center created The Autism Project in response to the growing number of children with ASD and the critical need to provide financial support for these underfunded services. The Autism Project provides a host of social activity groups, respite services, recreation and sibling groups, family supports services and information/referral services to over 300 children and families in the Greater Bridgeport community. The program has grown and expanded over the years due to high demand.

The Kennedy Center is a nationally accredited, non-profit, community-based rehabilitation organization that currently serves 2,400 individuals annually. The agency actively responds to the needs of the community by offering innovative, comprehensive service options to persons with disabilities and special needs, from birth to senior years.

The Kennedy Center operates 26 community experience programs, 16 group homes, an industries program composed of six businesses, supported and competitive employment and job placement services, a family support and respite service, travel training, and a variety of children's programs...

Default 'Agricultural specialisterne': rural employment revolution for those with Autism

The subject of the last few posts has been on Autism-related events and organisations in the state of Connecticut.

Hospital for Special Care, located in New Britain and Hartford, Connecticut, is a nonprofit long-term acute care hospital in the U.S. and the only one in the nation serving adults and children. Hospital for Special Care is recognized for advanced care and rehabilitation for various challenges, including Autism Spectrum Disorders...

On Wednesday, Dec. 28, 2016, The Autism Inpatient Unit at Hospital for Special Care (HSC), celebrated its first anniversary. At the time of its inception, this eight-bed unit was the first of its kind in Connecticut and one of only 10 interdisciplinary treatment facilities in the nation. The Autism Center at HSC is recognized as the nation's first Patient-Centered Specialty Practice (PCSP) by the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) and the inpatient unit is an extension of the Center and provides the beneficial resources and progressive services necessary to improve quality of life for local youths living with Autism.

The unit provides specialized pharmacologic and behavioral treatments to individuals, ages 10 to 21, with an established diagnosis of Autism who have already exhausted multiple levels of care in their communities. Prior to the foundation of the inpatient unit, many children were forced to travel out-of-state for proper treatment of aggression, self-injury or severely impaired functioning.

Over the past year, the Autism inpatient unit admitted 31 patients from a variety of placements including hospitals, emergency departments and group homes. Most of the children were between the ages of 11 and 16, but others were as young as six and as old as 19.

"The Autism inpatient unit has been essential in our quest to cater to the specialized needs of these children while reducing the cost and travel complications that burdened many of their families" said Lynn Ricci, FACHE, president and chief executive officer, Hospital for Special Care.

Each patient receives an interdisciplinary assessment that helps formulate a treatment plan by identifying target behaviors requiring improvement. This treatment occurs over a period of 30 - 45 days and includes behavior strategy development, medication management, parent education and training and discharge needs planning.

In an effort to reduce emergency department visits and hospitalization, Hospital for Special Care has also collaborated with caregivers and providers to ensure each child has appropriate support after discharge. This includes a follow-up questionnaire a week after departure and status calls with the child 30, 90 and 180 days after the conclusion of their treatment at the inpatient unit.

"It is our mission to ensure these children are not provided with a temporary fix, but a tangible solution that allows them to become independent and productive members of the community after they leave our facility," added Ricci.

20 children have already been discharged into their own homes, as opposed to just 11 experiencing this type of living arrangement prior to the program. Furthermore, this figure has potential to increase as five more patients are nearing the completion of their stay. "It has been a wonderful first year on the AIU. We have demonstrated a series of successful outcomes; but more importantly we have had a direct and positive impact on the lives of both these children and their families" said Patricia Aguayo, MD, MPH, medical director autism services, Hospital for Special Care.

The inpatient unit became a reality when HSC was awarded a $500,000 developmental grant in September 2015 after responding to a request for proposal (RFP) issued by the Department of Developmental Services...
