P.A.L.S. get a chance for summer fun



Since 2012, a group of local children ages 13-21 have participated in the P.A.L.S. (Peers using AAC for Language and Socialization) summer program, thanks to the efforts of teachers, therapists, parents, and the Katz JCC’s ACHaD Special Needs Department. This year the program’s theme was “Disney,” and the participants, who have multiple disabilities, enjoyed the chance to engage in a variety of activities, such as swimming, music with “All Together Now Music Group,” acting with the Walnut Street Theater, and more. Pictured here are several of the participants and the dedicated volunteers and assistants who helped make this week a success.
