Unicorn Children’s Foundation Goes Global Through Virtual Programming
Boca Raton FL – August 4, 2021 -- Individuals with developmental or learning challenges were negatively impacted by COVID in many ways. Those who were not able to attend day programs or had to discontinue employment may have experienced isolation. Unicorn Children’s Foundation, a leader in the field of neurodiversity, has offered programs to individuals around the world. This has eliminated geographic barriers, expanded social networks, and exposed neurodivergent individuals to educational opportunities that they would not otherwise have available.
Unicorn Children’s Foundation is proud to announce that they have served 48 participants in 17 states and Canada in the past year! The geographic expansion has not stopped with students – the instructors span from the United States to London and France! The Foundation has been offering classes that promote independent living skills including topics such as Daily Living, Coping Skills, and industry training courses for employment. For those who prefer in-person instruction, the Foundation also hosted a Summer Connection Program at the Unicorn Connection Center in Boca Raton, FL. These classes were focused on musical, performing, theatrical, and creative arts.
Jennifer Gongora, who is the mother of Intro to Photography student Victoria Delagarza, shares, “As a parent, it makes me happy to have programs such as this to practice inclusion and for it to be showcased for all to see. I can never tell you enough how thankful I am for you teaching this class.”
Please follow us on social media and sign up for our newsletter for timely information, scheduled programs, and events. A combination of in-person, hybrid, and virtual classes for the fall sessions will soon be announced at the Unicorn Connection Center to ensure that the most vulnerable members of society have opportunities to find meaning and purpose as engaged members of the community.
