Signal Centers' Children Predicting Super Bowl Winner During 11th Annual Tailgate Party; Currently 9 To 1

Thursday, February 1, 2018
The children at Signal Centers, 109 North Germantown Road in Chattanooga, will again be predicting which team will win the Super Bowl during the 11th annual Super Bowl Tailgating Party on Friday, Feb. 2 from 9:30 a.m.-noon.  The children, dressed in their favorite sports team apparel, have used the same “scientific” method each year by picking a helmet of the team they think will win. The children have only missed the mark one time the past 10 years.  

Physical and occupational therapists from Stellar Therapy Services will be setting up this event with therapeutic stations, such as an obstacle course, pass/kick/catch, corn hole, bubble play, football crafts and "pick the winner.
"  Each activity encourages both gross and motor skills and supports early learning within the timeframe of a national sports event.  

“Signal Centers’ teachers and children are ready for the Super Bowl,” said Signal Centers CEO Donna McConnico.  “Our celebration helps children not only enjoy exercise and activities, but also connect to the current interests of the community, and that naturally promotes inclusion.” 

Signal Centers, Inc. serves both children with disabilities and children who are typically-developing, age six weeks to five years.
