NEWCASTLE, Oklahoma -- Forget the tricks -- it was all treats Wednesday for some very special patients from the Children's Center in Bethany.

The children visited T.G. Farms in Newcastle where they went through the pumpkin patch, corn maze and even the petting zoo.

"A couple of our kids have pet some of the animals today. They're getting opportunities to reach out and explore the animals. It's great to see their reaction," said Delisa Manly, Children's Center Special Education Coordinator.

The trip helped the children work on their cognitive and developmental skills.
