Partners to Assist in Learning (Pal) and the Children’s Museum of Phoenix have partnered to create a custom Pal Video and digital, mobile-friendly Pal Guide to support visitors with autism, anxiety, and other learning differences. The new resources are free to the public at www.PalExperiences.org.
“Our mission is to engage the minds, muscles and imaginations of all children and the grown-ups who care about them,” said Kate Wells, Children’s Museum of Phoenix president and CEO. “We’re thrilled to partner with Pal because they help us fulfill our mission, and the Pal video and guide are not only beneficial for families impacted by disability, but for all families in general.”
By offering these tools, the Museum becomes a “Pal Place,” which means offering custom resources that support visitors with so-called “non-visible” disabilities, such as autism.
Pal’s tools are designed using evidence-based best practices in behavioral therapy, and all programs are reviewed and approved by a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA). Other “Pal Place” partners in Phoenix include the Arizona Diamondbacks and the Phoenix Suns.
