NY BookPALS spearheads pilot reading program for one of the most underserved populations in NYC.

Thursday, July 17 2008 @ 07:40 PM EDT

New York

Several volunteer actors with NY BookPALS gathered this week for an orientation/observation at PS 811 in Manhattan. They will be reading books aloud to several classes during the summer school program. This is a unique program for NY BookPALS as the students have multiple disabilities that include autism, severe emotional/behavioral needs, and/or severe language/communication disorders. Maria Cabezas, the NY BookPALS coordinator originated this program as she felt that volunteer actors could make a huge impact in the Literacy Curriculum in these special needs populations. This is the first time that NY BookPALS will work with NYC Special Education District 75. As stated on their website, “District 75 provides citywide educational, vocational, and behavior support programs for students who are on the autism spectrum, severely challenged, and/or multiply disabled. District 75 consists of 56 school organizations, home and hospital instruction, and vision and hearing services.”
