Halloween at The Oxford Center

Halloween at The Oxford Center is a time of enchantment and celebration where staff and children alike are encouraged to let their imaginations run wild and don their most creative costumes. The day’s highlight is our “Trick or Trinket” event, spanning the entire building and offering a captivating adventure for the kids. We emphasize the importance of customs and encourage parents to ensure their children are dressed for this memorable holiday. Together, we aim to create unforgettable memories and make this Halloween the best day for our young participants.

Blue Buckets

The Oxford Center is championing inclusivity this Halloween by using blue Halloween buckets as symbols of awareness for autism. When you spot a child with a blue bucket, it’s a subtle signal that they may be autistic, allowing those handing out treats to be more understanding and accommodating. The Oxford team has come together to collect over 90 blue buckets, creating a heartwarming Halloween extravaganza for the kids in our ABA program. This initiative signifies not only awareness but a united community that believes every child, regardless of their unique needs, deserves a magical Halloween.

Let’s make this Halloween a special and inclusive celebration for all children by embracing every child so they can participate and enjoy the festivities.

ABA Field Trip to Spicer’s Orchard

Last week, our ABA academy program took the kids to Spicer’s Orchard, and it was a day filled with pure autumn magic. Our little adventurers hopped on a rustic wagon ride through the pumpkin fields. Their faces lit up as they picked the perfect pumpkins from the patch, each one a treasure to take home. After the pumpkin-picking excitement, we all gathered around picnic tables to savor fresh apple cider and warm donuts, filling the crisp autumn air with laughter and joy. It was a day of adventure, connection, and cherished memories that will warm our hearts throughout the fall season. 

Mental Health Neurofeedback

As the seasons change, many struggle with mental health, due to the transitions from the bright, warm seasons to colder, darker ones like winter. At The Oxford Center, we’re redefining mental health by recognizing that it’s a unique journey for everyone. We offer innovative therapies like Neurofeedback, which can be personalized to your specific needs.

Neurofeedback is a non-invasive therapy that helps regulate and optimize brain functions. It’s like having a personal trainer for your brain, offering real-time feedback to help you understand and control your brain’s responses. This therapy can be particularly beneficial for anxiety and stress management, focus improvement, sleep disorders, mood regulation, and enhancing cognitive performance.
