Community Connections is excited to present its spring extracurricular programs for children with special needs and their families. This year, it will provide acting, art, golf, martial arts, music, soccer, tennis and educational programs free of charge in Conway, Little Rock and Russellville. For the first time, it will also partner with Special Olympics to offer a young athletes program of floorball and cycling in Conway.

“We are thrilled to be able to offer even more great programs for children with developmental disabilities,” said Courtney Leach, director of Community Connections. “These extracurricular activities will help our kids build their self-confidence, social skills and physical fitness all while having fun!”

On Sunday, Feb. 26, Community Connections will conduct a Sibshop/Respite Care event at Pediatrics Plus in Little Rock to give parents a break and provide support to siblings of children with special needs. It will also host a monthly young adults social group with recreational outings.
