Here at the clinic, we have closed the pool for two weeks out of an abundance of caution during this COVID-19 omicron surge. We hope to re-open the pool on Monday, January 31 but will notify you if anything changes . Thank you for your understanding!
All other therapy services are operating as usual in accordance with updated COVID-19 protocol from the California Department of Public Health.
We are very excited to announce a new class offering from our Teen Support Group for youth 12-19. After having provided education to hundreds of parents and caregivers over the years about their children's disabilities, now we have a class specifically for teens with disabilities and their siblings!
Learning About Disabilities Flyer
Taught by neuropsychologist Mariana Leñero Solar, a Tichenor board member, the class on Feburary 25th will provide an overview of disabilities. It will grow to be a multi-class series tailored to the interests and understanding of our youth, covering topics such as:
* Autism Spectrum Disorder
* Intellectual Disabilities * Learning Disabilities * Speech and Language Disorders, and more!
To sign up or for more information, please call 562-597-3696 or email Kim at email@example.com.
A big thank you to our Holiday Donors!
As we shared in our last e-newsletter, we are so grateful to all our annual holiday gift drive and event volunteers and donors who wrapped and collected and donated gifts, distributed gifts at our event, provided groceries for families, and purchased snacks for our volunteers.
In addition to those above, we'd like to thank those donors who directly supported individual families with their specific needs. These donors provided gifts and basic necessities to ensure that families had everything they needed for a joyous holiday season during a difficult time:
Soroptimist Alison Reid (far left), Soroptimist Nancy Hegelheimer (former executive director of Tichenor Clinic, second from left), and Soroptimist Lori Delaney (immediate past executive director of Tichenor Clinic, far right) meet Mayra Jimenez, our Director of Administration & Family Services (second from right) to deliver gifts for four families during the holidays.
Here are just a few of the thank you notes we received from grateful children and families:
If you would like to be a holiday gift donor in 2022, please contact our Director of Administration & Family Services Mayra at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you!!
