We are a nonprofit who helps families find hope and answers, realizing that what was once impossible alone is now possible with an army- Ady’s army.

Lekotek’s mission is to facilitate the inclusion of children with disabilities into their families, schools and communities by providing accessible play, adapted toys, technology, information, and resources. We offer monthly play sessions for children who are birth to 8 years old and their families with any disability. There is no referral required. We are not therapy but complement therapy very well. At Lekotek, we look for ways to set the environment up so that all children can be successful, build self-esteem and find independence. We use a variety of toys and technology during our one-hour sessions, and families get to go home with the toys from our session to use at home until their next visit. Lekotek is for the whole family! Siblings and parents participate in the session, and the Lekotek Leader plans activities and toy selections with the whole family in mind. In addition to our monthly play sessions, we also offer many family activities, music, happy tails, holiday events and more! One of my favorites is our pond raft outing in Marietta that we offer in conjunction with the National Park Service! Unfortunately, during the pandemic we have suspended all of our in-person group activities, but we do offer some virtual events and have even had two successful drive-thru events. Our website also has some great information. Like us on Facebook
