Char-Em ISD's Early Childhood staff are taking part in a national initiative to provide mobility opportunities to children age 5 and under who have mobility challenges. The "GoBabyGo!" program was started by the University of Delaware and now includes more than 40 partners around the U.S., including Char-Em ISD.
GoBabyGo! modifies commercial toy ride-on cars to provide mobility and sociability for children, by adapting the cars to address each child’s unique needs and abilities.
The Petoskey High School Robotics Team, the Paladins, are partnering with Char-Em in this effort. The Paladins work with parents and Char-Em staff in the design, engineering and modification of the vehicles.
For information, contact Nicole Lindwall, Early On Coordinator, at 231.582.8070.
