Rating: 5 stars  

My two children participate in horse therapy, bowling, drums alive and in music and art therapy through Developmental Wings. They love all of the activities and events, it allows them to make new friends and it encourages them to be themselves and express themselves. Developmental Wings is an amazing non profit organization that provides services to those with all special abilities.

I volunteered with the horseback riding and music and art therapies, and the kids really seemed to get a lot out enjoyment out of the programs. The organization is a fantastic contribution to the community.

that my younger sister is one of the individuals that receives services from Developmental Wings. She loves getting the opportunity to have interaction with the other kids and enjoy activities that she might not otherwise be able to participate in.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

This organization is the most efficient non-profit anyone will ever encounter. There are no paid employees, no buildings, utilities, and virtually no overhead at all. All proceeds go directly to the children it serves. It is all volunteer and all services are free. My daughter loves the horseback riding, music and art classes, bowling, and Wings Cadets programs.

The horsebackriding has really helped my daughter. The music and art classes have fostered friendships that are wonderful to see.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Add ABA therapy and develop a center for more specific individualized therapies.

This is an extremely active support group for all disabilities. What is so awesome is that they do not charge for ANYTHING or any activity. My Grandsons loved the horseback riding and the party in the park.
They offer bowling, softball, music therapy, equestrian therapy and much more.

Enjoyed their bowling and equestrian therapy for my autistic Grandchildren. The kids love being themselves and not forced to be who they aren't.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Move more activities to Ft. Smith with gas prices so high.
