Caley started at CDS Monarch in July of 2016 as the Autism Skill Building Coordinator. In just a short time she has helped make the program her own. Her responsibilities include planning the activities for the participants, taking the kids on outings and doing activities with them and planning each month's social themes, which often include problem-solving, conversations and expected and unexpected behaviors, among others. "I try to plan the activities around these social themes but also get input from the participants," Caley said.
"Caley has been a great asset to Autism Skill Building," Blended Creative Opportunities, Transitions, Active Seniors and Recreation Manager Valarie Daniels said. "She helped write an exceptional grant renewal, helped to develop a proposal to meet the needs of children who have aged out of Autism Skill Building and would benefit from a continuing program and helped plan and run a great Autism Awareness Fair."
Caley said that what she enjoys most about her job is "building relationships with the people we serve and their families."
Thank you, Caley, for all your hard work and dedication!
