All families enrolled in PACT’s program have access to our Toy Lending Library, which lends the latest adaptive switch toys to families to help stimulate their children’s development.
The Library also maintains a collection of typical toys, books and games for young children.
PACT Play Opportunities at Home
The Toy Lending Library was started with a generous gift from the Stainman Family in memory of their son, Benjamin, who received services at PACT, as well as the memory of their parents who were strong supporters and advocates for children with special needs. To honor the memory of their parents and to help children with disabilities similar to those of Benjamin, Stuart and Ted Stainman and their wives, Bonnie and Barbara, established an endowment to benefit PACT. The income generated by this endowment was used to establish and maintain the Toy Lending Library in Memory of Benjamin David Stainman.
PACT Pet Therapy
Animal-assisted therapy is a new addition to our program. One day a week, children at WOC have the benefits of interacting with a trained dog and her owner. Animal-assisted therapy has many benefits for children, such as pain or stress reduction, increased confidence, and opportunities to develop language and coordinated motor movements. Children enjoy the comfort of an animal’s soft touch and calming presence while developing new skills.
