Welcome to Extraordinary Child!

 Where every child belongs

  Extraordinary Child is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization

With a heavy heart we have  temporarily closed our doors due to lack of funding and volunteers.

We know that many children and families depend on us and we are working hard to re-open. We are still providing opportunties for families to get together for fun and support.

This was not a choice we wanted to make and We have not given up.

We are still a non-profit we just no longer have a physical place to meet.

 

 

 We need help....

We need Board Members and Committee general, legal, marketing, fundraising, and accounting- All that is required is meeting 4 times a year and about 3hours of volunteer work each month.

We need Donations and Sponsors!  All donatio(More info & Application)- ns will go toward helping us re-open and to continue to provide social & play opportunities in the community at large.

Our unique facility offers a supportive and nurturing environment for all children, with or without disabilities, and their families. We offer a judgement free safe zone for EVERYONE to enjoy.

In addition, to our specially designed therapeutic setting, we provide resources, social opportunities, networking, social play, a place to practice therapeutic techniques, and most importantly a place to have fun.

Play is the work of children, and it is through play that children develop sensory, gross motor, fine motor, cognitive language, social, and emotional skills. Our Small play facility is made up of 6 main areas the Quiet Room, Social Play/Fine Motor area, Pillow Pit, Teen spot, Art room,  and Baby Play. To see current images of our facility please click on link.  (SEE FACILITY) You can also see our facility in action on our Facebook Page.

To use our facility you do not need insurance or a referral, since we do not provide childcare or direct therapy. All we require is that you bring your Extraordinary Children and your sense of imagination.

We offer play groups, birthday parties, parent groups and more.

Why are we Extraordinary? 

We are unique...

In how we empower special needs families and persons with disabilities.

We are unique...

In our "NO APOLOGIES" policy. Unless a person has done real harm and an apology is appropriate, we reject the idea that a parent or person with disabilities should feel the need to constantly (usually unconsciously) apologize for being who they are.

We are unique...

In our belief that the movement of 'inclusion' goes both ways at a special needs organization, hence everyone is welcome and deserves help and respect.

We are unique...

We are the first organization to create a place that offers what we do.

We are unique...

Our design, mission, purpose, and goals all reflect that we are a companion service to other non-profits and therapy & medical practices and not their competitor. We provide families a place to learn about options and services that are available to them and provide a place to utilize skills they have learned at other organizations.

We are Uniquely Extraordinary... 

 

We are located of the Farnum Pike
