Children need to be registered a minimum of 10 days prior to your visit, to ensure that our staff has adequate time to find just the right buddy* to connect with your child.
The first step of the process is to match up your child with a volunteer who will be able to meet their needs on a one-on-one basis. Each week your child attends, we work to ensure the same buddy is available. This relationship is important in our program so that kids can learn to connect with their buddy, each other, and with God.
Please note that volunteers have a heart to meet the needs of your child and training is provided. However, not every volunteer is professionally licensed.
Play Differently allows children and teens with special needs to play with a purpose in a therapeutic environment. At Pathfinder Church, families will experience a safe place, where parents can receive a respite by attending worship, children can get regulation, and everyone can find connection and community.
The motor area is designed to help engage muscles and joints. This type of input can be very calming for those who are easily overwhelmed by sensory stimulation.
Teen Sensory Room
The Teen Sensory Room provides a calming corner and motor area for teens to regulate their sensory system. By breaking down sensory barriers, students are better able to make connections and grow deeper in their faith and relationship with God.
