It’s a known fact that the number of individuals being diagnosed on the autism spectrum is on the rise.  Parents are often given this news of their child’s diagnosis without being given the resources to help their child.  The resources in the Texoma area are few and far between. Behavioral Concepts, Inc. (BCI) is a non-profit organization in our area that was created to give individuals with autism or other behavioral challenges the tools they need to function successfully in their community.

BCI opened its doors in 2012 to provide services including in-home ABA therapy, parent/caretaker training, social skills training, and skills training in daily living. In the fourteen months since opening its doors, services have been provided to 26 individuals with autism or other developmental disabilities, ranging in age from 3 to 20.  BCI creates individualized treatment plans to meet the goals of the participants and their parents/caregivers. BCI is a lifeline to many of our community members.

In order to keep this priceless resource in our area, we are asking you to join us for the Colors of Autism…a Night of Painting, Embracing, and Giving.  The event will be held on May 9th at 6:00pm at Elements Art Center in downtown Durant.  The cost is $35 a person.  This special event includes a silent auction with donations from many of our local businesses.

For more information or if you would like to participate in this May 9th event, contact Kelli Ostman at 580-775-4933.
