September means new beginnings and the return of old standbys. We love that the new school year can be paired with an event that brings joy to all our children: the FOCUS and LACASA Fall Party!

What is the FOCUS and LACASA Fall Party?

The FOCUS and LACASA Fall Party is a way for our children to let loose and de-stress. They can socialize with their friends, and make new ones along the way. Families can kick back and get to know one another. There is music to listen to, games to play, and lots of fun to be had!

The Fall Party began back in 2010 as a traditional dance with a FOCUS twist. The FOCUS family trekked to Cornucopia of Torrington for a 70’s themed bash that was a lot of fun…but not the perfect fit.  The next year, FOCUS held the Fall Party at Connecticut Junior Republic of Litchfield. This time, we added games and arts and crafts to the dancing, snacks, and raffle that was already available. It was fantastic! We had found the right ingredients for a family and Autism-friendly night of fun!

The Fall Party: Something for Everyone! 

DSC_0469Since 2011, the party has evolved into a social event that everyone looks forward to. Our children love to dance the “Cha Cha Slide“,  the”Electric Slide“, and “Gangnam Style” with their peers.  Many children will sing along to their favorite tunes, including “Call Me Maybe” by Carly Rae Jepsen and “Firework” by Katy Perry. Others are content playing board and card games or drawing! Families have the chance to relax and network with each other, knowing that their children are in a safe, supported environment. There is something for everyone at the FOCUS and LACASA Fall Party!

Join Us!

The FOCUS and LACASA Fall Party will be held September 26 from 7-10 PM at FAVARH. We hope you can make it!
