Community Help In Learning about Developmental Disabilities
Friday evenings become social events for co-ed teens with developmental disabilities. There’s music, movies, dinner and more, supported by teen mentors, registered professional nurses and community volunteers.
Teen Project CHILDD:
- Provides age supportive social activities for teens with developmental disabilities.
- Builds self-esteem while supporting independence.
- Role models of teen interest and behaviors by dedicated teen mentors.
- Encourages co-ed interactions for age-important socialization.
The program also gives the parents the “gift of time” by providing a brief respite from caregiving.
What parents are saying…
“Just a quick note to let you know how much my son enjoyed himself at the teen party this month. Your program allowed my husband and I to have an evening together. We ate out at a nice restaurant and even had time for a walk to the ice cream parlor! We appreciate so much that your program includes teen girls!”
