Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority (PSTA)

Caregiver Support, Educational, Employment
The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) makes it possible for people with disabilities to have better access to the community. PSTA Access eligibility process will encourage people to use regular PSTA fixed-route service whenever possible. In this way, PSTA is ensuring that PSTA Access will only be used by those who truly need the service. The eligibility process determines if a person has the ability to use the regular bus. It does not make decisions based on the type of disability you have or a specific diagnosis by a physician. Rather, it determines if you are able to do such things as travel to a bus stop, board a bus, and navigate the fixed route system. Eligibility for PSTA Access service is based on how a person's disability under ADA affects daily life activities which would prevent the use of accessible fixed-route service.

The Barn by Unlimited Pediatric Therapy

The Barn by UPT is a community play and education center focused on building connections through socialization of littles while engaging them in quality education programs designed by Unlimited Pediatric Therapists. The class curriculum was curated to specifically highlight main points of children’s development, adding adaptations for varying abilities, and reminding all that play is our best learning process! As child development professionals, we know that all children meet milestones on their own path, and while some excel greatly in one area others may need assistance to grow in all areas. Therefore, classes are designed to meet children where they are, independent of their chronological age. When choosing classes for your child, take note of the listed prerequisites to help you find the classes best suited for your child. We are excited to see caregivers connect, peers to socialize, and kiddos’ development to flourish.
