2018 Coloring Contest Winners & Read to Me Tea

The Thirteenth Annual Read to Me Tea celebrates the artistic accomplishments of 60 West Michigan children with developmental delays.


Spring is the season to celebrate, as we recognize Social Worker Month in March, Occupational Therapy Month in April, and Better Hearing and Speech Month in May. Children are eligible to enter the competition by attending the area schools, this was the first year that our in-office clients were invited to enter, and won, this includes members of our social language group and individual therapies.


“The artists at the reception are always so impressive,” Jean Silbar, speech pathologist and CTC’s executive director, explained. “They are very professional and it is a treat to celebrate with them.”


This year we are honored to welcome local legislators as our “celebrity” readers including a staff member from Representative Justin Amash’s office, Representative Bill Huizenga, Representative Mary Whiteford, Representative Rob VerHeulen, and Mary Judnich from US Senator Debbie Stabenow’s office. This provides parents of special needs children with the opportunity to speak with local lawmakers about their child and special education issues.


“This Tea is made possible because our professionals allow our students with disabilities to shine and share their skills with family, friends and our elected representatives,” said Silbar.


This year’s subject, Fable and Fairy Tales, had over 100 entries. Winning designs are produced as note cards for participants.
