Help Me Grow Hosts “A Night to Shine” at Metzenbaum in March

The Help Me Grow and Early Intervention staffs at the Geauga County Board of Developmental Disabilities will be hosting “A Night to Shine” on March 25, 2015 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at the Metzenbaum Center. The event is an opportunity for children to dress up and walk the red carpet like movie stars!

As each child is introduced and he or she will be able to showcase his or her unique personality and accomplishments. This event will also give families the opportunity to meet and share with other families experiencing similar developmental delays while enjoying light refreshments. There will also be a Chinese Raffle. Each family in attendance will receive 10 free raffle tickets for a chance to win various items!

This event is open to all families enrolled in our EI program who are actively receiving services. The Early Intervention Program serves children from birth to age 3. Children are sometimes referred by doctors, but primarily enter the program after concerned parents call asking for help.

Frequent issues include physical delays like crawling and walking, talking, eating problems like chewing and swallowing, as well as problems interacting and playing with others. Some children come with medical diagnoses, such as Down’s Syndrome or Autism Spectrum Disorder. Some children were premature, born as early as 23 weeks. Whatever the reason, each child and family have their own uniqueness and are working toward their own individual goals!

To RSVP for “A Night to Shine”, call 440.729.5250 ext. 1530 by March 16, 2015.
