Autism Families CONNECTicut

Autism Families CONNECTicut was founded in January 2010 by a group of parents, grandparents and family members who recognized that there were limited weekend recreational and social activities specifically targeted to children on the autism spectrum in Connecticut. Initially, to fill that gap, the focus was on providing programming for children on the spectrum, ages 5-12. While still the focus, programming has since expanded to include preschoolers ages 3-5, teens ages 13-19, and young adults ages 20-29 on the autism spectrum, as well as siblings and parents when appropriate.
Programs are locally based, high quality, low cost, accessible to families and run by professionals. Every program is held in a safe, non-judgmental environment, designed to encourage children, teens, and young adults who attend to have fun, get active and make friends. Most programs are primarily on the weekends and are multi-week long.

Early Childhood Consultation Partnership (ECCP)

The Early Childhood Consultation Partnership® (ECCP®) is a state funded program that helps to improve the social-emotional skills of children from birth to age five. There is no cost to the childcare program or families. This is a voluntary program, so teachers, centers and families only receive this service if they would like to.

In their Core Classroom program, master's level ECCP® Consultants partner with directors and teachers to decide which social-emotional strategies to use in the classroom and with any chosen children. Common reasons to call ECCP® include things like supporting children with challenging behaviors, creating new routines or improving transitions. This strengths-based service focuses on helping the teaching team, so they can best support the classroom’s needs. ECCP® is best when used early, before more challenging behaviors occur.

ECCP also offers programs for family childcare providers or in the child's home.

Events are community-based, volunteer-driven and non-therapeutic and serve to remind children that they are not alone in their grief.

Middletown Trail Guide

The Middletown Conservation Commission has created a guide to Middletown’s open spaces and trails. You will find information about conservation lands in the City that provide a variety of passive recreational opportunities, including hiking, walking, jogging, cross country skiing, bicycling, canoeing and kayaking, and last but not least studying nature. Many of the City’s open spaces have notable geological, scenic and ecological features. This guide provides directions to the popular well-used open space areas, as well as less familiar spots throughout the City. Each of these properties offers diverse opportunities for exploration and enjoyment: traversing broad open fields, following winding trails through wooded terrain, climbing rocky crags or paddling along lush water ways, and observing a variety of wildlife from birds to foxes, and deer to turtles. In season, the flowering trees and shrubs offer a colorful array. Autumn is particularly spectacular. All of the awesome beauty of nature flourishes within the City’s conservation properties waiting for you to discover it.
