Donated bricks surround the Kent County Veterans Memorial ParkWe also support the Kent County Veterans Memorial Park which tributes Gold Star Mother and Families, those lost in Vietnam, Korea, and the Middle East. The park also contains a POW/MIA Chair of Honor, a War Dog memorial and a UH-1 “Huey” Dustoff helicopter perched on an 18-foot stand. The park is financed through the sale of memorial bricks. If you wish to honor a family member or loved one who served, buy a brick to support the memorials, visit the Support the Memorials page.

Chimes is working with TRICARE military insurance to implement an Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) program for military families with children who have been diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).

Military families are often faced with the burden of relocation, which can disrupt a child’s routine. For a child diagnosed with ASD, having a consistent and structured environment is crucial in helping him/her to grow and manage him/her behaviors. Chimes’ goal is to provide a community-based or in-home ABA service for families so they learn and continue treatment in order to create a stable environment, regardless of relocation disruptions. Our ABA services are free to qualifying children of military families with TRICARE insurance.

The program is led by a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) who will be responsible for the supervision of Registered Behavior Technicians, whose responsibilities will include working with child-in-need services, and training for the family/caregiver.

The TRICARE Autism Program will be directed by Marc Fields, a BCBA who has a master’s degree in psychology. Marc has 10 years of experience as a behavior analyst working with individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder and utilizing Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) to initiate positive behavioral changes. The ABA program services provided will include direct treatment, data collection, data analysis, behavioral assessments, family/caregiver
training, and behavior progress reports.
