Two cute kids who support PeerPals.org!

Welcome to PeerPals.org! We are an organization dedicated to helping preschool age children with disabilities become part of their communities, one friendship at a time. Won't you join us?

  • Congratulations to Julie, our Executive Director!!

    Julie was one of five people to be honored on July 24, 2015 by the Nassau County Executive Edward Mangano for her advocacy for disability rights. “These advocates have fought for equal rights and committed themselves to programs, services and outreach and enforcement efforts,” said Mangano at a ceremony marking the passage in 1990 of the Americans with Disabilities Act. The act prevents discrimination based on disabilities by requiring employers to provide reasonable accommodations and ensuring that public accommodations meet certain accessibility requirements. So excited to frame and hang up her citation on the PeerPals.org office walls!!!
  • Happy Birthday To Us!!!

    Happy birthday to us, happy birthday to us, happy birthday dear PeerPals.org, happy birthday to us!!! Today we celebrate PeerPals.org's 7th birthday! Over the last seven years we have grown from no group play dates in 2008 and one group play date in 2009, to 23 group play dates in 2015! Thank you to all of the families that have joined us on our journey as we strive to build communities of inclusion for preschoolers with disabilities. Thanks, too, to our amazing volunteers!
