Buffalo Hearing and Speech Center awarded NCCF grant

The Buffalo Hearing and Speech Center was awarded a Community Benefit Grant from the Northern Chautauqua Community Foundation for the purchase of sensory room equipment for their Special Needs Early Childhood Program in Fredonia.

According to Deb Morlock, BHSC Director, “Students with disabilities serviced in occupational and physical therapy settings have experienced less disruptive behaviors with the new sensory room equipment and are more engaged with improved attention to task. This equipment will impact our organization by helping the students achieve greater success and help to ameliorate the children’s delays and prepare them for an inclusive school setting in the elementary school years.”

Founded in 1986, the NCCF is committed to improving the community through the promotion of local philanthropy, strategic grantmaking and community leadership. Since its inception, NCCF has distributed over $9.4 million in the form of grants and scholarships. For more information, visit www.nccfoundation.org.
