After debuting on the list in 2010, Fun and Function has been named this year’s 32nd fastest growing company in the Philadelphia region.

Airing on Special Needs Talk Radio, the broadcasts, which will air weekly in the same time slot, will touch on issues such as how to use movement as therapy at home or school; identifying fun activities that develop social skills with the least amount of stress; and which sensory equipment has an immediate effect on calming a child down. Guests will include parents of special needs children, educators, pediatric therapists, doctors and community leaders. Each podcast will include Q&A time, in which parents can reach out to the hosts directly.
An annual project conducted by the Entrepreneurs' Forum of Greater Philadelphia, Philadelphia Business Journal and Wharton Small Business Development Center, the prestigious Philadelphia 100 tracks the fastest growing, privately held companies in Greater Philadelphia.
