Come enjoy a play date party at Potential’s autism friendly and therapeutic playground, at 170 Pheasant Run, Newtown, PA, on Saturday, September 29, 2018 from 11:00 am to 2:00 pm. Children will be able to use the playground and snacks and beverages will be available.

Kristine Quinby, Founder, President and CEO of Potential, expressed her excitement: “Our vision has been to create a world where every person with autism can lead a successful life of value. We built the playground with the financial support of the community and wanted to give back. This securely-fenced playground has been available to the community, free of charge, during evenings and weekends, when it is not in use by our clients. We thought it would be fun to have a party before the summer ends.

Learning to play (with others) and playing to learn (social interaction) is a real benefit to children with autism. Simple lesson plans will be available at the play date and on our web site for parents to use with their children.

Every piece of equipment in the playground was specifically geared to encourage interaction with other children, or enhance other skills in their development. Examples are the multi-child swing, ‘walk the plank’ balance beam, standing seesaw and dual slide.”

Funding for the project was obtained through private donations and grants from Foundations Community Partnership, The Provident Bank Foundation and the Bucks County Commissioners.

Potential, a non-profit organization, was founded in 2006 by Kristine Quinby and helps children and adults with autism reach their full educational, social and emotional potential.
