Yes I Can! Summer Olympics

July 8th to July 13th


Troy Central Little League

Swift & 7th Avenue

Troy, NY

Paula has been interviewing families for over 3 years now for Parentology with Paula and one of the issues that keeps coming up is the struggle that families face when they have a child with a developmental disability. They are often told that their child “can not participate because they are disabled.” These kids are not the problem, budget cuts and lack of patience from teachers are what stop these kids from participating in activities.

Family First Always and Parentology with Paula wanted to make these kids feel special so Paula decided to host the YES I CAN! Summer Olympics, where a disabled child will be paired up with a non disabled child and together they will complete olympic tasks throughout one week. The children must be between the ages of 8 to 14.

The olympics run from July 8th to July 12th from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. and the Olympics ceremony will take place on Saturday, July 13th from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
