Continuing Education for Seniors

Join us to expand your world! For nearly 50 years, Attic Angel Association has organized a weekly series of continuing education programs for seniors.

With a wide range of topics presented by experts in their fields, the programs are held nearly every Monday morning September through May at Attic Angel Place, 8301 Old Sauk Road, with coffee served at 10 a.m. and the program starting at 10:30 a.m. The programs are free and open to the public.

No reservation is required but visitors must wear a health-grade mask (the most common color is blue, but any color will do). Program attendees will also be asked to screen at the front entrance. There is an 80 person capacity and attendees will be admitted to the program on a first come, first serve basis.

The Playing Field

The Playing Field Poster

Children affected by trauma such as homelessness and those with special needs such as autism spectrum disorders have different sensory needs for emotional support that helps them learn to manage behaviors. Our dream is to create a play space that allows children to be successful while ... being kids! Some of our plans:

  • A large open space for running (crowded spaces are often a behavior trigger for children)
  • High fencing and an appropriate climbing structure (children impacted by trauma or those on the autism spectrum often take bigger risks and climb higher)
  • Sensory panels that welcome independent play when children are agitated
  • A maze for children to walk through (this helps the brain to organize)
  • Small structures where children can feel safe
  • Specially designed pieces to work large muscle groups

By helping children at this critical point in their development, your gift will be helping the future of our community!
