Celebrate Differences is committed to be an all inclusive center, involving families and children of all disabilities. Exactly the reason we are so excited to be partnering with the PASS or Plainfield Autism Support System. The PASS group will now be the Celebrate Differences Autism Support System. It is the same group with the same goals. The best part, because of the partnership the group will be able to do more.
The goal of the group has always been and will remain as follows: to support and provide information for parents, caregivers, and relatives of children on the Autism Spectrum. The group will remain a casual group with non-judgmental views.
We will continue to hold monthly meeting and monthly playgroups along with other exciting activities!

The FBI’s Child ID App
You’re shopping at the mall with your children when one of them suddenly disappears. A quick search of the nearby area is unsuccessful. What do you do?
Now there’s a free new tool from the FBI that can help. The Child ID app—the first mobile application created by the FBI—provides a convenient place to electronically store photos and vital information about your children so that it’s literally right at hand if you need it. You can show the pictures and provide physical identifiers such as height and weight to security or police officers on the spot. Using a special tab on the app, you can also quickly and easily e-mail the information to authorities with a few clicks.
The app also includes tips on keeping children safe as well as specific guidance on what to do in those first few crucial hours after a child goes missing.
