We are all wonderfully made
“For Kids Like Me” is a social and networking group for children with various special needs. The purpose of this group is to ensure our children have the opportunity to participate in activities geared to meet the needs of children with special needs without being shunned away or being made to feel uncomfortable.
The goal of “For Kids Like Me” is to inform parents of activities taking place throughout the metro Detroit area, organize play dates and share and gather information with and from parents that may be of help to us all.
For Kids Like Me
About the Founder
My name is Carol Orr and I am a native of Michigan. I received my formal education in Detroit. I went to Wayne State University where I earned my Bachelor’s Degree with a major in English and a double minor in African and Women’s Studies in 2011. I recently graduated from Wayne State University whereby I earned a Master’s in Educational Leadership.
I have worked within charter and public school settings for over ten years. I have gained experience in a variety of capacities. For the past three years, I have been working with autistic children as an Applied Behavior Technician.
I was motivated to start “For Kids Like Me” by my granddaughter and the students in her special needs classroom. I saw the need to create a social network aimed at providing children with fun outlets aimed at their specific needs.
FKLM Growing Stronger Day by Day
For Kids Like Me has been growing over the last two years by leaps and bounds. We have successfully planned and organized events for children with special needs as well as those within our tutroing program. We currently have 12 students particpating in the tutoring program and have anywhere from 15 to 25 children attending various events.
I am excited to announce that FKLM is planning "Lillie's Fancy Dress Ball", an event that Lillie has been asking for since the beginning of FKLM.The Ball takes place on June 23, 2019 at the Hazel Park Recreational Center at 620 Woodward Height, Hazel Park MI. Tickets are $10.00 per person. Please stay posted to the website and For Kids Like Me Facebook page for updates.
At this time For Kids Like Me, LLC have started a Go Fund Me page to assist with upcoming events that we will be holding. If you are able to make a donation, it would greatly appreciated.
Here is a list of upcoming events that FKLM parents have discussed and think would be for the kids to do for the upcoming months. If you have any suggestions please email us.
