BENEFITING: THE BELL CENTER FOR EARLY INTERVENTION PROGRAMS
EVENT DATE: Feb 12, 2012
As many of you know, I am a member of The Service Guild of Birmingham and this is my 5th year to volunteer with a child receiving therapy at The Bell Center.
This year I am with a precious little girl, Caroline (2 1/2 yrs). Caroline was diagnosed with Down Syndrome and began therapy at The Bell Center shortly after her birth. With the help of The Bell Center, and the tremendous support of her family, Caroline is walking, climbing stairs, coloring, using sign language, and even beginning to talk :) Caroline is a daddy's girl, with a very sweet disposition, who also loves to play with her 3 older sisters.
My husband Scott is running the 1/2 Marathon on behalf of Caroline. We would truly appreciate your support for this tremendous organization -- The Bell Center.
THANK YOU!!!! Scott and Stacey Morales

The Bell Center offers early intervention services to children at risk for delay, often within a few days or weeks after birth. Parents often feel a sense of helplessness when they discover their child has special needs; however, the Bell Center staff and volunteers are able to provide them with specific information and encouragement allowing parents to move from a sense of confusion, to a deep pride in their children’s accomplishments and optimism for the future.
Programs at The Bell Center are designed to promote growth in gross and fine motor skills, as well as language, cognition, self-help, and play skills. Each child is evaluated annually, and goals are tailored specifically to the child’s needs. The Bell Center employs a staff of highly qualified professionals including physical and occupational therapists, speech/language pathologists, and early childhood special education teachers who work directly with infants and toddlers in many programs while directing the efforts of volunteers who work with toddlers in other programs.
