Come play at Chicago Parent Special Needs Playdate 2018

Here’s one way to have fun indoors while showing the kids some love: the second annual Chicago Parent Special Needs Playdate. Kids with special needs and their siblings can get their wiggles out while mom and dad gather great info on therapies, camps, schools, hospital programs and more.

Performances by the Royal Princess Parties, Super Stolie, Buddha Belly Yoga, Bubbles Academy and WTTW Big Idea will get kids excited, while everyone’s fave game gurus, The Playground Games, keep them moving. When kids need a break, they can hit the quiet room.

If your child’s wheelchair is in need of a tune up, A to Z Mobility will offer free minor repairs and adjustments.
