WhisperGLIDE® Swing Added at NHS Allegheny Valley School’s Slippery Rock Program Center


Through the generous support of many, NHS/AVS Slippery Rock Program Center recently acquired a WhisperGLIDE® Swing. The WhisperGLIDE® wheelchair accessible swing is for all ages and ability levels. With the swing, those utilizing wheelchairs for mobility are able to enjoy the outdoors with friends. The motion of the swing, along with the table make it an enjoyable way to visit with others. The swing will be added to the SRPC Sensory Garden in the spring of 2014.
