This webinar will introduce members to Pal Experiences. Pal is on a mission to help families impacted by autism and related “non-visible” disabilities have more frequent and more successful away-from-home experiences. They do this by customizing tools commonly used in behavioral therapy for sports teams, museums, restaurants, healthcare, and more. By building aPal Places TM network, they strive to reduce the 70% isolation rate that families currently experience when living with someone with autism (National Autistic Society). Our communities are for everyone, and by partnering with forward-thinking business we are creating a place where everyone gets to go.
