...Parents Who Rock, a group of Montclair parents who perform to raise money for various causes, will perform live at a Kick Off to Summer DLC Fundraiser on Saturday, June 2, 7:30 p.m., in the Commonwealth Club, 26 Northview Ave. Highlights include hors d’oeuvres, desserts, beer, wine and cocktails, dancing, and a silent auction and raffles. All proceeds go to The Developmental Learning Center, Montclair’s public preschool program for chil-dren with special needs.

For several years, the DLC’s occupational therapist has employed a program known as Vital Sounds Therapeutic Listening to assist children with sensory challenges. The specialized headphones and CDs required for this program are quite expensive, but the benefits to the children include improved attention spans and speech and language gains. Funds will go toward specialized headphones, modulated CDs, training for those administering the program and scholarships for children aging out of the DLC so that they may continue with the listening program.

Funds raised will also be used to benefit the autism program by improving parent training and professional devel-opment and to secure teacher materials for educational programs.

Opportunities are available for volunteers, and donations of alcoholic beverages, soda, bottled water, silent auction/raffle baskets and items and food are needed.

Tickets are $50; reservations can be made by e-mailing Tickets are limited and on a first-come, first-served basis. For more information about the DLC, visit
