The Fearless Fun Inclusive Play Experience at the Sustainable Health & Wellness Village Festival
The Sustainable Health & Wellness Village® Festival (SHWV) is a 3-day community-based health and wellness program that brings together residents and community resource providers within a festival-like atmosphere to expand access to healthcare and enable self-advocacy in ways that advance public health outcomes and quality of life for communities of color.
Our workshop will benefit includes both caregivers and children. Specifically children ages 3-18 year old with autism, cerebral palsy, down syndrome and/or other developmental challenges. First, the therapists will provide an overview of the demonstration area and benefits of community practice. Then, families will be paired with a trained professional that will provide strategies for practice during game time. Lastly, families will receive literature containing resources where they can seek additional developmental support.
We need volunteers!
