On November 25th, students and staff gathered for a Practice Thanksgiving Feast. Classrooms teamed up to make side dishes and decorations for the meal, doing projects designed by Birchtree’s autism specialists to help students develop their communication, literacy, and fine-motor skills. The meal offered students an opportunity to sample traditional holiday foods and prepare for holiday celebrations with their families.
