Philanthropy at The Learning Experience Doylestown
At TLE®, we realize that not every parent wants their children to
grow up to be scientists, doctors or lawyers, but we believe that each
and every parent wants their children to grow up to be
good people. With that in mind, we created our unique
and proprietary philanthropy curriculum to teach children
the value of selflessness and generosity with the hope
that these values remain with them throughout the course
of their entire lives.
Monthly philanthropy events are held at each center to
help reinforce what it means to give, share, and
donate. Some events we hold throughout the
school year also tie into the monthly philan-
The Wilson Family
thropy curriculum (e.g. Support the Troops,
Save the Animals, Food Drive, Going Green, and more).
Within the philanthropy curriculum, preschoolers will learn about concepts like philanthropy, cause, and charity. The
preschoolers, teachers, and parents have embraced this newest edition to the TLE® curriculum. Through the philanthropy
curriculum, the children will get to meet Grace the Greyhound and Charity Chihuahua, our wonderful philanthropy mascots,
who teach children that "it's not how big or small you are, it's the size of your heart that matters." With the philanthropy
curriculum, our overall goal is to teach young learners that they can make a difference in the world around them.
We are currently raising money for this incredible family!
The Wilson family has been a part of our TLE Doylestown family since 2015!
Dan and Brittany have been together for over 15 years; High School Sweethearts both attended Kutztown University then
were married in July 2012. They have two adorable daughters Francesca aka (Frankie) 4 and Georgia 2.
February 1 was a day that our family won't forget. Dan was admitted to the hospital because he was out of breath after
having a "cold" since November. Dan was told they had found four masses on his lungs and one on his media steinum
which is under the sternum by the heart, arteries and nerves.
Lives were changed forever.
On February 12, they received the devastating news that Dan did in fact have stage 4 Adenocarcinoma Lung Cancer or
Non Small Cell Lung Cancer. Tears, Shock, terror, denial... Dan is 34 (too young for Lung Cancer!), in great health, and a
non-smoker.
The positive to all of this testing is that he tested positive for a gene "mutation" called ALK. About 3-4% of all lung cancers
have the ALK rearrangement. This is the new face of lung cancer, only discoverable by molecular testing. Researchers
have discovered treatments that inhibit ALlk+ lung cancer growth which can slow or even stop cancer progression, often
with minimal adverse side effects. Although there is no cure, the hope is that these medications increase the life span by
years compared to traditional lung cancer. The top doctor for Dan's cancer is located in Boston and will work closely with
the doctors close to home to ensure he gets the best treatment possible and this man who is kind, selfless and unwaver-
ingly positive is going to fight. He is going to shatter all statistics and fight this thing.
This is just the beginning of their fight! Please say a prayer send a donation that will help with the financial burden that
arrives with this horrible disease. Our prayers and love go out to this young beautiful family. The road ahead may not be
clear, but we have faith and we have each other!

I hope you enjoy all the fun and wonderful places we included in this issue and be sure to let us know if you completed
our Winter Bucket List!

I included a few pictures from last winter, I found this place in Ottsville called the Creek Crossing. It was so beautiful with
all the snow and a great place to take pics. This winter try and get out and see our beautiful area after a snow, look for
animal tracks with the kids, bring some hot cocoa, and enjoy the winter months as much as you can.

Maybe this is your year to try something new, be more creative, or have more "me" time, whatever it is, be sure to enjoy
it and have fun!

Enjoy your winter Mama's and be sure to check our page for giveaways and contest.

Hello, my name is Tony Bria, and I am the owner of Bria Method.
When I was little, I had two dreams for myself 1.) start a family and 2.) build my
own gym. In 2015, I married my beautiful wife, Rachel, and the year after that,
my first daughter, Giana, was born. I had been working as a private fitness
trainer over the last 10 years, but the hours were long, and I wanted to be
around to watch Giana grow up and make memories. In that moment, I knew it
was time to accomplish my second dream of starting my own gym.
Since making that decision, Rachel, Giana, and our newborn daughter, Jordyn,
have been by my side every step of the way, cheering me on. I’ve always loved
motivating people, and becoming a father has only affirmed my love of helping
people and guiding them to be the best they can be.
When people ask me “what is Bria Method”, I like to tell them we are place where people come to feel inspired,
build confidence, and get results.
Located in Warminster by Costco and Ann’s Choice, our group fitness studio offers top fitness routines and trainers.
We offer two different intensity’s to our class schedule: HIIT Classes (High Intensity), which mixes dumbbells, TRX,
bodyweight, aerodyne bikes, and treadmills to create a burn that gets you results, and LIIT Classes (Low Impact),
which is a variety of Barre, Dance Fit, and Yoga to sculpt and tone.
Different workouts are meant for different people, so we want you to feel comfortable and explore which classes are
right for you! We are not a one size fits all studio; we can train anyone with our mixture of classes.
I’m very grateful that this past June, the fitness studio I’d always imagined for myself finally became a reality. I wanted
this place to not only appeal to everyone’s workout style, but also build a family-oriented center to work out in.
Our studio is all about community and we at Bria Method would love for you to join our family, so we can work out
and spend quality time together.

Happy winter everyone! As we’ve begun spending more
and more time sipping hot drinks, snuggling under warm
blankets, and generally staying indoors, our native
wildlife has been preparing for the harsh cold of the
season.
Squirrels have stockpiled food, turtles have begun
hibernating, and some birds have migrated south until
the weather gets warmer.
Certain birds, however, choose to stick around. Cardi-
nals, Chickadees, and a host of other tiny birds have
adapted to be able to tough out the cold wind and snow!
Their top layer of feathers can puff outwards, creating
little insulated air pockets between their second layer of
downy feathers.
Their body heat then warms up the air, just like a puffy
winter coat!
You can help them out by getting and filling up a bird
feeder. They need plenty of fatty foods, like seeds and
Chickadee
nuts, to keep the temperature up!

The opening of our new expanded therapy office in Jamison, PA is the realization of a years long goal to provide
comprehensive therapy services to individuals and their families.

In the larger space, we have an OT gym with room for more equipment and swings. We have space for our
growing SOS feeding program as well as room for our adult speech, OT and feeding therapies.

In 2020, we are launching special needs yoga, the listening program for auditory processing and on-site tutoring
with Tutoring-Works.

Communication and the ability to live, work and play independently are the daily ambitions at Circle Speech
Services.

As a life-long member of the local community, I want our space to always be welcoming to clients, parents, adult
children, partners and caregivers.

In our therapy rooms, we are strengthening skills to support a life-the life of an individual, of a family and of a
community.

At Circle Speech Services, my daily aim is to provide my staff with the space, materials and knowledge to help our
families thrive. Each family needs different supports
and information. Our expanded space and diversi-
fied therapy programs were developed with our
clients and their needs in mind.

Circle Speech will be here when you need us.
