a program i wish was still around

This is part one of a two part series part two can be found here

I have to say I wish that this program was still around for the teens in my area, but it was stopped the program was called teens getting into Fridays It was based around building independence and social interactions. The main objective was for us to learn how to plan.

One week we would plan an event and the next week we would actually do what we had actually planned. We were learning organizational skills which we could put into practice in other areas of life without actually realizing it.

What kind of groups were you involved in or what do you wish was available to your child that isn’t in your community?

About lifeofthedifferentlyabled

Laura Forde founded her blog through my eyes: my life with cerebral palsy in December 2009 out of a great need she had, realizing that there was a vast gap in firsthand accounts of what life was like living with Cerebral Palsy: she knew then that the only way to see this reflected online was to create the change herself and thus this blog was born Laura was born four months premature, weighing a mere one pound three ounces and given ten percent odds for survival. She was diagnosed with cerebral palsy at the age of three. After graduating from college, she continued writing and doing what she loves to do most; speaking to groups about her life experiences and sharing what she has learned from her journey. Her blog lifeofthedifferentlyabled was created after discovering that the online community lacked the voice of people in her situation. In its first year, the site saw over 20,000 hits from all over the world. Her readers are from all walks of life; some with disabilities, parents of children, professionals, and others who seek to gain a better understanding of the world of the differently abled.

  1. When I was a teen I had been in a similar program. I think it was on Wednesdays. We also planned the next event at the end of the night. It was great for gaining more social and life skills.
