(June 9, 2015) Catherine Read talks with Donna Goldbranson, Executive Director of SPARC (Specially Adapted Resource Clubs) and Lee Ann Caulkins, Director of SPARC Connects. The community of adults with disabilities continues to search for ways to integrate with the larger social community. This means finding ways of getting people with a variety of challenges engaged in learning new skills, participating in sports and building lasting friendships.
Two SPARC Club Members, Ryan Cotnoir and Rachael Stern, also join the show to talk about their experiences in this organization and what they like best about it. Fairfax County has three locations for SPARC Clubs in Faifax, Reston and McLean.
