ACTIVITIES

Open Your World Book Club

 

In partnership with the Gwinnett County Public Library, we are offering this literacy opportunity for readers and aspiring readers with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

 

Meeting once a week in 6-8 week sessions,  Book Club selects a chapter book that is appropriate for teens and adults but written with considerate text (words that are easier to understand, larger spacing between lines, etc.)

Person-centered Planning and Transition

 

Transition is a time that is crucial for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Fostering self-determination and a path into adult life can be hard work and you may have lots of questions and decisions to make.  We can help provide personal support during this process, especially in helping to form good goals for transition while still in school or providing an individual person-centered planning session known as a PATH.

Special Studies in God's Word

A chronological study of the Bible will be available via Zoom for teens and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities, modified so that all members of our group can understand the stories as well as the concepts. This study meets each week.  Thursday evening at 7:00 pm.  All needed materials will be provided.

We hope to be helpful to faith communities that desire to better include individuals with disabilities.  Contact us for more information.
