Finding activities for the kids to do during the Winter break can be challenging at times, and for kids with special needs, sensory issues, or disabilities, not only is it that more challenging, but the choices are limited. More and more businesses that cater to kids and their families are now offering special sessions for kids with special needs and as appealing as that is for some families, the dilemma they now face is that their kids, who already have a difficult time connecting with other kids, continue to be isolated. However, thanks to organizations like Justice 4 Autism, and Bright Pick Businesses like NY Dart Zone, kids of all ages, stages of development, and abilities are able to take part in recreational activities together.
Kudos to Noodles & Company in Patchogue for being selected as one of Long Island’s Bright Picks! Noodles & Company is just one of many businesses throughout our community that have opened their doors and are creating ways for anyone to succeed.
NY DART ZONE is the first NERF arena here on Long Island and our Momee Friends are loving it. A local Dad wrote us about the positive experience he had at the NY Dart Zone for a friends birthday party.
“FUN, EXCITING, EXHILARATING and AWESOME” were words used to describe this local business the whole family will enjoy going to.
Not only is it exciting and exhilarating, but they teach great team building skills. Everyone NY Dart Zone was awesome and so accommodating. The boys can’t wait to go back! Even I’m intrigued! “
What if going to get haircut could make a difference in someone else’s life? You can and Hair We Sharedoes that each day by turning donated ponytails into high quality wigs for kids and individuals who can not afford one and need a wig due to medical hair-loss issues.
I recently had the opportunity to visit Keep Moving Forward, Inc. in Garden City – a state of the art intensive physical therapy facility for adults and children. The vibe was just as bright and uplifting as its owners, Shai and Amy Eapen, PT, DPT, who want everyone to feel empowered.
