Capable Kids and Families

St. Louis ARC’s Capable Kids and Families program is a lending program which provides toys and therapeutic equipment for families of children from 0 – 6 years old who have a developmental disability. The program is a wonderful service for families with young children because it gives them the opportunity to try out new toys and equipment that may be helpful toward therapy and play goals. If your child is like mine, you never know what toys will be a hit and attention spans are limited for new toys so having the opportunity to trial a toy or piece of equipment is such a gift.

Along with providing the loan program, Capable Kids and Families also provides valuable local resource information for the families.  My Capable Kids and Family worker has provided us with invaluable information on equipment financing, respite and local activities.

Capable Kids and Families also sponsors Playgroups twice a month at the St. Louis Arc Family Center.
