PFA IN THE COMMUNITY

PFA Training

First Responders, Healthcare personnel, Educators, Parents and other Professionals attended our practical and well-regarded Autism and other Intellectual/Developmental Disabilities trainings. Our training teams, which include our self-advocate co-trainers, taught 174 classes to over 4,600 attendees.

Resource Center

“How may I help you?” is what 1,453 people heard when they contacted the Pathfinders for Autism Resource Center. Thousands more received information and resources at Resource Fairs and other events.

Safety

From Traffic Stop Practice, Safety Kits and swim scholarships, we promoted safety in the community.  With support from local police throughout Maryland, we hosted five Traffic Stop Practice sessions supporting over 75 drivers and passengers with intellectual and developmental disabilities. 14 children with Autism are receiving swim lessons with our new swim school partnerships.

Recreational Events

Something for everyone . . . swimming, yoga, soccer, baseball, sailing, movies and more. Families enjoyed our legacy events as well, including visits to the Maryland Science Center and the Ladew Topiary Gardens.

Self-Advocate Advisory Committee

We hosted 25 SAAC meetings. In addition to socializing, our members planned and participated in virtual and in-person activities, e.g., movie night, BINGO, Trivia and more. The SAAC also informed PFA staff on topics and services that matter to them, e.g., cooking classes and beta test of apps supporting independence, e.g., smartsteps4me.

This year we served 17,450 individuals across the state through our programming.
