BENEFITING: THE BELL CENTER FOR EARLY INTERVENTION PROGRAMS
EVENT DATE: Feb 12, 2012
Cooper's Crew is made up of five members of The Bell Center staff -- early childhood special education teacher Lacey Viner, occupational therapist Jennifer Wolf, speech/language pathologist Stacey Shipman, administrative assistant Lauren Bolles and executive director Jeannie Colquett. But more importantly, we're five excited runners ready to support The Bell Center and raise money in honor of cutie pie Cooper. Cooper, born in August with Down syndrome, has been attending The Bell Center since he was just a few weeks old. He's been making great strides and we're so honored to be running for him!
Please consider making a donation to Cooper's Crew -- a donation that will not only help us to continue to provide crucial early intervention services to Cooper, but also to almost 100 children from throughout the central Alabama area who attend The Bell Center. We need your help!

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.
