Meet Kaylany

Kaylany has participated in NWSRA programs for the past two years, and most recently joined the STAR Academy After School program. Over the last two summers, she has swam at the pool, went on field trips and made friends at the Little Sprouts Summer Camp.

When asked about her participation in STAR Academy,her father, Euran Williams stated “We were excited about Kaylany having the opportunity to participate in fun activities that would help her with sensory issues.”Through her interactions with NWSRA staff, Kaylany has had the opportunity to try a variety of activities and become comfortable with each new interaction.“The staff is very helpful. We get daily reports of all the activities Kaylany has done, and it makes us happy to read about her afternoon.” Mr. Williams stated. Through an individualized approach to recreational programming, NWSRA offers activities that meet the needs of each participant.

Children spend more than 7 hours per day in front of a screen (TV, computer, video games, etc.).- Dowshen, 2015. Unplugging has been shown to help improve quality of life, help you feel more recharged everyday, help you sleep better, and improve your interpersonal communication.

Mr. Williams added “The Star Academy provides an additional support in providing Kaylany safe and fun activities every day. All of the activities are planned to work on the different challenges Kaylany faces.” Thank you Kaylany for being a part of the NWSRA family, and we look forward to many more years of growth at NWSRA programs!


NWSRA provides children with special needs opportunities to have fun, make friends, go new places, learn new things, be included and celebrate their lives. However, even though NWSRA keeps costs as affordable as possible, it is still out of reach for some families. SLSF, the fundraising arm of NWSRA, provides scholarships to those in need. Be a part of a child’s amazing experience by donating to SLSF.
