Canopy receives donation
Tice White, Walmart Corporation’s senior director of public affairs, and affiliate Serena Clark presented a $2,500 check to Canopy Children’s Solutions in support of Canopy Autism Solutions, which offers an array of innovative solutions for children on the autism spectrum. In 2018, Canopy opened the Center of Excellence in Jackson which includes an early intervention clinic utilizing Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) therapy for children ages 18 months to eight years old. This clinic provides children with intensive therapy of 25 or more hours per week helping to address delays and challenges with communication and language production, sensory processing, motor skills, emotional regulation, cognitive abilities and social skills. The clinic is a leader in the use of the Promoting the Emergence of Advanced Knowledge autism curriculum, better known as PEAK.
