Review for Variety -- The Children's Charity of Greater Philadelphia, Philadelphia, PA, USA
We LOVE Variety Club! All it took was one Easter Egg hunt over 10 years ago, and we've been part of their family ever since! You can't know what a relief it is to know my son has somewhere to go in the summer that's both safe and fun! Chances are good if they have something going on, we'll be there, from Friday night basketball to the annual Holiday party! All ages, all abilities are welcome here!
Review for Autism Society of America, Bethesda, MD, USA
When I first debated leaving NY for PA in 1999, and I needed information about resources for my 3 year old newly DXed son, the Greater Philadelphia ASA was the first I went. It happened by accident, actually; back then Google wasn't what it is now. But the people of the ASA email loop stepped up to help guide me through the process. Their kindess and wisdom has led me to a community I never knew existed, mainly with the unflagging support of Patti Erickson (GPASA president and fearless leader). From Sensory Friendly Movies to the Day Out at the Zoo, there's always something amazing going on for our kids in the Philly area, and usually I hear about it from the GPASA first. Thank you!!
