We were very proud to host Lieutenant Governor Brian Calley and State Senator Jim Marleau at our MORC Autism Center on Friday, February 6th.
The two officials toured our facility, chatted with staff and spoke with parents about how Applied Behavior Analysis therapy and the Center's other services have made a huge difference in the lives of their children.
At the end of the visit, MORC's Director of Children's Services, Sheena Gorecki, presented the Lt. Governor with a framed piece of artwork made by the children at the Center. The puzzle pieces formed into the shape of the state of Michigan, had a simple message. It was, "Our differences help us fit together."
