PALS Enhanced Summer Program

PALS is excited to begin the Enhanced Summer Program this week!  Students will enjoy recreational activities such as swimming and hiking, experience exciting trips in the community, and participate in artistic activities such as drama and visual arts.  In addition to all the summer fun, our students will continue developing new skills and maintaining skills acquired through their ABA therapies.  The summer program ensures that students have continuity in their learning and minimizes disruptive breaks in hard earned routines. PALS summer program does not receive funding from the Ministry of Education and would not be possible without the help of our donors!  We would like to extend a huge thank you to Diamond Foundation for their gift to the Enhanced Summer Program which will ensure a memory making few months for our students!
