Indoor Playground Project

by ICEC

Summary

We would like to, for the first time in our history, build an indoor playground specifically designed for working with young children who have special needs. This space will be utilized for occupational & physical therapy for group and individual programs, and screening & evaluating children on those skill sets. We have received a generous $20,000 matching grant from Pacific Life and need your help to raise the remaining $20,000 to get this sensory playground built!

Challenge

It is crucial for parents to intervene early in their child's development. Most families suffer tremendously both emotionally and financially when a developmentally delayed child is born. Early intervention focuses on special instruction and therapy designed to help infants and toddlers with "special needs" improve their developmental skills.

Solution

Integrating a sensory playground into our center will give children with developmental challenges the opportunity to experience a new therapeutic setting, resulting in achievement of functional skills. The playground also reduces the need for additional related services as the children transition to higher grades and into integrated classrooms.

Long-Term Impact

From 2015 to 2020 we plan to serve over 5,000 children and equip their parents with the resources and tools to ensure a successful transition into public and private preschools. Our early intervention and education services allow our children to walk to elementary school rather than riding the special education bus, being mainstreamed into regular classrooms without an aide, and being fully included in academic and athletic activities.
