Learning Knows No Bounds

    CWDR offers an array of assistive toys for children with disabilities between the ages of 2-5 years old.  In addition, we provide toy training to see which toy would work best for a child’s different stages of learning.  Families may bring in their children to try out and play with the various toys Monday through Friday from 8:00 am to 12:00 pm and 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm.  Our Assistive Device Coordinator, Mayra, is available to bring the assistive toys to children in their homes for free demonstrations and playtime.  Click on the links below to see what assistive toys are available.  For more information, contact Mayra Colazo at 509-962-9620 or by e-mail at mayra@mycwdr.org.


    Play Groups – CWDR provides weekly Play Groups to families with children who have special needs
    ages 2-5 years. Play Groups are a small gathering consisting of a child with a special need, their
    parents/caregivers and their siblings. Groups gather for fun, play, support and social interaction
    between family and friends. Play groups are broken down by age categories to ensure
    developmentally appropriate experiences that include a range of activities, social play, free play,
    themed play and/or art, Vtech tablets and craft activities. These play groups enable children to
    interact with peers and learn about social expectations and cues in a fail free play zone. We welcome
    you to join in the fun to meet and learn from other parents, siblings and children and experience
    newfound friendships in a healthy, nurturing environment.

    Home visits – To accommodate children who are
    medically fragile and families who have difficult
    schedules, individual play sessions can be facilitated
    in families’ homes.

    Individual Play Sessions- One on One play time to encourage kids to start learning how to use either
    the traditional or the adapted toys. Giving them a quieter atmosphere.

    Parent Training/Advocacy – Gathering parents to share advice and experiences

    Parent Resource library– Parenting and play ideas, disability information, referrals to additional
    services and help in advocating for their child
