A message from out fearless leader Lauren Weeks,Psy.D:
In 2012, I set up the F.U.S.E. (Foundation for Understanding Social Engagement) Preschool in Lexington, MA because I truly believed children with social challenges were not being serviced appropriately in public or private early education programs. It was and still is the view that children will gain social skills by just “being included” with other children. Most children with social challenges in the typical preschool either gravitate to the periphery or become behavior problem children because they feel so incompetent and not successful. I believe children with social challenges NEED scaffolded strategies to understand a social interaction with a peer. So we created a preschool based on cognitive behavioral strategies not just one but a wholistic FUSEion focusing on relationships, shared experiences, flexible thinking, social communication, emotional regulation, and mindfulness. We created a preschool that looks and feels like a typical preschool where a snowman craft is made but instead of an individual snowman the whole class is making one group snowman integrating all the children’s ideas into one combined idea.
We opened the doors with no money, 8 kids and a whole lot of faith. We stand five years later with many many success stories of children who have lost their diagnosis, integrated without assistance into the public school, and most importantly are happy successful social kids!
