ExplorAbility

In 2011, PACT and Port Discovery Children’s Museum launched a new website, www.explorability.org. ExplorAbility is the result of a partnership between PACT and Port Discovery that began in 2007. The partnership's mission was to provide an inclusive "playful" therapeutic community for children of all abilities and their families. The partnership goal was to combine the best of what a children's museum and a health and human services organization have to offer for families with children who have special needs. The partnership activities included adapting museum exhibits and programming for young children and those with special needs, providing therapy groups that help children with special needs in the community and offering support to parents and other caregivers.

Met Life and the Association of Children’s Museums awarded our efforts their “2009 Promising Practice Award” and “2010 Replication Award” which enabled us to create this on-line toolkit that provides interactive training so that other cultural and educational organizations may also provide more inclusive environments for children with special needs and their families. We hope you will take some time to explore ExplorAbility.org!
