The Verbal Behavior Center for Autism (VBCA) is proudly hosting its 2nd Annual Silent Auction Fundraiser, “A Night to Put the Pieces Together” on April 12, 2014 at The Mansion at Oak Hill in Carmel, IN. The VBCA is a non-profit organization that has provided high-quality Applied Behavior Analysis services to children with autism and their families since 2003. The annual fundraising event helps to support the treatment of children with autism ranging in age from two through twelve years old who have significant developmental delays.
The VBCA’s services allow for a skilled therapist to work one-on-one with each child to help promote the highest level of progress and success. Our team of therapists and Board Certified Behavior Analysts work collaboratively to facilitate progress for each child in areas such as communication skills, adaptive skills, social skills, toilet training, and feeding problems. Our goal is to help children with autism gain their fullest potential and transition into a typical classroom setting where they can naturally learn from their teachers and peers.
The VBCA’s 1st annual fundraiser, held in April of 2013, helped to celebrate Autism Awareness Month, and the VBCA’s 10 year anniversary of providing exceptional services to children with autism. Hundreds of items were graciously donated to support the event including an Andrew Luck signed mini-helmet, a Kid Rock signed guitar, Disney World tickets, and David Letterman tickets. The formal evening, including dinner, drinks, and entertainment, gave friends and family of the VBCA an opportunity to celebrate the significant impact the VBCA has had on children and families over the past 10 years. Additionally, recognition was given to the hard working staff of the VBCA who devote their lives to helping children with autism learn. The money raised by our evening of fundraising helped to support tuition assistance programs for many of our children. The cost of providing such high intensity services to treat children with autism can be very high; therefore, the VBCA’s tuition assistance program enables many families to enroll their children, who could not otherwise benefit from this type of individualized treatment.
This year’s 2014 Fundraiser is expected to host many more guests, provide many more auction items, and as a result lead to additional funds raised. All money will be used to directly benefit the treatment of children with autism with a focus on providing tuition assistance to families.
