The grant from Wells Fargo makes it possible for Vegas PBS to expand the DCMC with the new children’s area and funds additional table space where paraprofessionals, educators and caregivers accessing the DCMC can use materials strategically to reach learning goals, conduct small meetings and consult with children and adults addressing special needs.
