Zippy’s Friends has been running in the state of New Jersey since 2007. After four years under the management of YCS, a non-profit provider of health and social services for children and families, the programme has been taken on by Montclair State University. A new Center for Autism and Early Childhood Mental Health has been set up there, which will run Zippy’s Friends in the state as part of its services supporting infant and early childhood mental health.
Zippy’s Friends was introduced to the USA with support from the Todd Ouida Children’s Foundation, which commemorates and celebrates the life of a young man who died in the 9/11 attack on the World Trade Center.
