Thursday April 6th, 2017 – CABI Spring Fundraiser at Texas Roadhouse Worcester
BCI’s nonprofit affiliate, The Center For Applied Behavioral Instruction, CABI, will hold it’s Spring fundraiser at The Texas Roadhouse Worcester from 3:30 – 9 pm. CABI is a 766 approved special education day school for students with autism and challenging behaviors. BCI and CABI staff, families and friends will come together to enjoy a special dinner in support of the school. In turn, Texas Roadhouse will generously donate 20% of all sales to CABI.
Prior to enrolling in CABI, each student had experienced difficulty learning the requisite skills and behaviors to be successful in their local public school. CABI staff seek to reverse that negative learning experience by identifying the variables that promote each student’s success. CABI’s mission is to provide best practice behavioral and educational services to children with autism spectrum disorder. We believe that every child has the unique potential to grow and develop skills that will lead to a more independent and fulfilling life. CABI staff are committed to maximizing each student’s potential.
