Founded in 1969, the Whittier Area Parents’ Association for the Developmentally Handicapped (WAPADH) is a private, non-profit organization that supports individuals with a variety of lifelong disabilities including Cerebral Palsy, Autism, Down’s syndrome and related medical and/or behavioral disorders. Our history of achievements is the result of strong community and family support and an organizational culture that continually seeks to remove barriers and change the limiting cultural stereotypes long associated with this population. WAPADH currently serves people in the Southeast Los Angeles, San Gabriel Valley and North Orange County areas.
WAPADH offers monthly opportunities for individuals and their families or service providers to come in and brainstorm communication needs. We can discuss equipment, strategy, communication skills and social skills. Volunteers will assist you in thinking outside of the box. You are welcome to come one time, or every month. We only ask that you MAKE A RESERVATION ahead of time as we limit our list to the number of volunteers that we have each month so that we can meet your needs.
For a reservation contact Cheyanne at 562-946-0467 ext. 106. For a list of future dates, click here.
Each session is one hour with two time blocks available. Workshops are FREE!
