Waltham Massachusetts was founded in eastern Massachusetts in 1636 and incorporated into a town in 1738 and then into a city in 1884. The Charles River cuts a path through the southern section of Waltham and has been used throughout its history for transportation and industry. Waltham is probably most historically famous for the Waltham Watch Factory that made its home on the banks of the Charles and was a pioneer company of the industrial revolution.
The Charles River has given way to Route 128, the main economic center of the city and has the second largest office market in the greater Boston area. Waltham has a diverse housing market with multi-family houses near the downtown section and single family neighborhoods along its borders.
Waltham is the home for higher education with two of the most prestigious colleges in the east - Bentley College and Brandeis University. The downtown section of Waltham hosts many diversified restaurants guaranteed to satisfy any craving or palette along with many retail establishments.
With all of these amenities and its convenient location just off Route 128 and its public transportation systems which include the commuter rail - Waltham is an especially pleasant place to live or work.
The Introductory Workshop addresses the main aspects of the ESDM in a one-day didactic. It is designed for attendees from a variety of backgrounds, including professionals, parents, and other interested parties. It is not intended to train providers to fidelity, but is one step in this process. The cost for this one-day workshop is $300 per person (+ service fees). A $50 Early Bird Discount will be applied to tickets purchased before May 22nd. At the heart of the ESDM is the empirical knowledge-base of infant-toddler learning and development and the effects of early autism. ESDM intervention is typically provided in the home by trained therapists and parents during natural play and daily routines. ESDM is a relationship-based intervention, and involves parents and families. The aim of ESDM is to increase the rate of development in all domains for children with ASD as it simultaneously aims to decrease the symptoms of autism. In particular, this intervention focuses on boosting children’s social-emotional, cognitive, and language skills, as development in these domains is particularly affected by autism. ESDM also uses a data based approach and empirically supported teaching practices that have been found effective from research in applied behavior analysis. ESDM fuses behavioral, relationship-based, developmental, and play-based approaches into an integrated whole that is standardized and yet completely individualized (Wagner & Rogers, 2011). ?Participants of this workshop should purchase and read Early Start Denver Model for Young Children with Autism: Promoting Language, Learning, and Engagement, by Sally Rogers and Geraldine Dawson, (ISBN 9781606236314) prior to attending the Introductory ESDM workshop.

Hello, East Coast! Last summer's Upod Academy writing workshop in Boston worked out so well, we're doing it again. Join us on August 1 and 2, 2015, for two very full (and fulfilling) days of career tinkering, pitch polishing, deep thinking and guest speakers. We’ll look at what’s working and what’s not in your freelance career and set a plan for making great things happen in the weeks and months ahead. As always, the key is the support system you get from a group of like-minded writers who won't let you slack off on your goals. It doesn’t matter what level you’re at since the floor is yours to talk out your situation, your challenges and your plan for world domination. I’ve seen so many personal and professional turnarounds at Upod Academy. People who’ve never written for publication find full-time writing careers. Freelancers land staff gigs. Staffers quit to travel. Others sell memoirs or novels, produce radio shows, turn hobbies into paying gigs. I’ve seen people switch from print to TV writing, from PR to magazines, from blogs to books, from screenplays to better screenplays. This being Boston, we'll stay traditional. These sessions work best when you come prepared with ideas and a vision for your future (the prompts you get in advance help in a big way). On Saturday, we'll assess whatever's holding your career back, and hear your ideas, big and small, as we whip them into sellable proposals. Sunday is all about setting an agenda for pitching, writing and living better. The hard work we do usually begins with being kind to yourself. That's where the support system of the group comes in handy. You won't believe how helpful and affirming it is to have a network like this. It's a community that sticks with you long after the weekend is done. Talk to me about alternate methods of payment. Contact me at email@example.com
When: Aug 1, 2015 9 AM in Waltham, Massachusetts (Sat, 01 Aug 2015 09 )
If you are new to our program, we would like you to contact us by email (firstname.lastname@example.org) BEFORE you register your child so we can find out a little more about them and make sure that 1) our classes are appropriate/a good fit for them and 2) there is room in the week you are choosing. Calling all kids aged 7 - teens! Run away with the circus without actually having to leave home! Moody Street Circus founders Sacha and Melinda Melina Pavlata are hosting / teaching 3 weeks of circus sessions in their Waltham headquarters this year. Each 1/2 day weekly session costs $350. Moody Street Circus Class size is always deliberately kept low - to around 10 kids per session, to maximize safety and ensure individual attention for all kids to learn circus tricks safely on all the equipment. If your child has trouble following directions or listening to teachers in classes, please don't register them for this program! Safety is paramount in the circus arts and respectfully listening to your teachers is integral to the highest quality experience for all involved. If you have any questions whatsoever, please contact Melinda Pavlata, Director of Moody Street Circus: 781 893 2491 HALF-DAY CIRCUS ARTS PROGRAM WEEKS JULY 13 - 17 :: 9 a.m. - 12:30 p.m :: $350 JULY 20 - 24 :: 9 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. :: $350 JULY 27 - 31 :: 9 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. :: $350 Students in the circus summer program will learn and practice juggling, plate spinning, light assisted tumbling, pyramid formation, rola bola balancing, hula hoop, walking on the rolling globe, low wire tightrope walking, mini trampoline, and regular trampoline. They will also learn the basics in circus aerial arts including cloud swing, static trapeze, web, lyra (aerial hoop), aerial web, aerial hammock and silks. We start the day with a juggling practice followed by a full-body warm-up with flexibility and strengthening exercises. We proceed to circus tumbling skills on the tumbling mats, including forward rolls, monkey rolls, wheelbarrows, candlesticks, cartwheels and pyramid formation. Throughout each session we introduce some of Sacha Pavlata's multi-generational circus family clowning skits, including Dead Man, Robin Hood the Coin comedy act, the Newspaper and more. KIds can practice their circus theatrics and comedy. When time permits we will be screening some world-renowned circus acts from our private collection and discussing what makes a great circus performance. We break into small groups for safe, assisted learning on the aerial equipment. Students learn and practice at their own pace and according to their own level. While taking breaks from aerial work which can fatigue the arms and hands, students practice ground acts of rola bola, rolling globe, low wire, plate spinning, juggling, trampoline. We end the day with skills on the mini-trampoline - straight jumps, tuck jumps, straddle jumps, dive rolls and - if we decide your child is ready - front tucks. We will provide fresh fruit and bagel with cream cheese snacks daily. If your child has any special dietary needs, do let us know and PLEASE PACK HIS OR HER OWN SNACK. Also, let us know if your child has any allergies or other medical issues. Program days will begin at 9 a.m. and end at 12:30 p.m. Students can be dropped off at 8:45 a.m. Campers must be picked up and signed for on time at 12:30 by their parents or care-givers. Parents are allowed to stay and observe the the program and their kids in action at any time - visit on our comfy futons and watch what your kids are learning from the sidelines. Attire: Moody Street Circus is a gum-free, street-shoe free zone. We ask that even parents who are dropping off and picking up their children remove their shoes before coming into the studio space. Students will work barefoot, but indoor-use only sneakers and/or acrobatic shoes are suggested for work on unicycle and low wire. Long hair must be worn pulled back in a pony-tail or in braids. No jewelry or zippers on the equipment. We go upside-down on equipment and always follow the SAFETY FIRST! Rule, so: Leotards and shorts or leggings for girls, shorts and shirts that can be well-tucked in for boys. Campers should not be worried about tucking in their shirts when they are upside down, it is very distracting and dangerous when you are learning new tricks to be worried about your clothing. IF YOU DO NOT WEAR A LEOTARD YOU CANNOT PARTICIPATE IN THE PROGRAM. Waiver forms MUST be completed for each camper or participation in the program will not be allowed. Call Melinda at 781 893 2491 or email her (melinda [at] cirquepassion [dot] com) with any questions. To secure your child's spot in a session, pay online now. Once you are registered, we will email you waiver forms to fill out and send in for your child. This signed form is required prior to participation in any physical activity at Moody Street Circus studio. MOODY STREET CIRCUS COUNSELOR - IN - TRAINING PROGRAM: Weeks 1, 2 and 3 9 a.m. - 3 p.m. $500 per week 4 slots available per week. AVAILABLE ONLY TO OUR CURRENT STUDENTS AGED 13 and UP. Must have prior permission of program directors. WE HAVE A VERY LIMITED NUMBER OF CIT SLOTS, please apply and register early. If you are 12 and want to be in the CIT program, you and your parents must talk with Melinda in person. Parents of kids who are interested in being a Moody Street Circus Counselor in Training must obtain verbal or written permission of program directors before they can register for the CIT summer program. They must be current students at Moody Street Circus and work well with others. They must be able to attend the program all day. CITs must be proficient at many different circus skills and set good examples to those who are less experienced than they are. They should be generally self-motivated and excited about the prospect of working to improve their skills; they should understand the ideals of proper form, attention to safety, use of breath, and demonstate careful transitions and exit strategies from tricks. They must be patient and enjoy helping younger kids. DUTIES OF CITs: Moody Street Circus CITs will be working with younger kids in the summer program to demonstrate basic skills (e.g. - how to make wrist hitches in the aerial fabric, Buddha pose and foot knots from the ground, how to practice walking the wire with proper form, how to safely get on and off of the rola bola, etc. CITs will not be teaching anyone tricks in the air. CITs participate in all activities of the morning program - warm up, tumbling, pyramids - and then, with guidance from the directors, help Melinda & Sacha demonstrate skills and assist with the younger campers. CITs help prepare snack and facilitate snack time discussion with the younger kids. CITs SHOULD PACK AND BRING THEIR OWN LUNCH. After the morning activities, we will eat lunch, then return to the studio for afternoon intensive individualized training that includes circus conditioning and perfecting individual, duet and group acts and skills with lots of one-on-one time from Sacha and Melinda. We will help the CITs set goals, develop their acts, and guide them in their practice. Pick up for CITs is 3 p.m. Here's a fun video showing our circus students in action!
