The Children’s Center for Communication and Development at The University of Southern Mississippi spent the last days of October caravanning across campus to trick-or-treat with staff from various academic and support services departments.  

“Trick-or-treating is a very typical activity; and while our little ones may use a communication device to say ‘trick-or-treat’ or ask for candy, it’s another opportunity to help progress toward their individual goals,” said Sarah Case-Price, director of the center.

Children enrolled, their family members and staff visited the Dean’s office for College of Health, the School of Polymers and High Performance Materials, Office of Research Administration, Controller’s Office, Payroll and Purchasing, University Police Department, Institute for Disability Studies, and the office of Disability and Accommodations.

This is an annual event and The Children’s Center works with parents to make sure all children enrolled have an opportunity to participate.

“It’s important that others know how capable our children are of activities like this and our friends across campus are so giving of their time,” said Case-Price. “Their commitment to helping us carry out our mission means more than they know.”
