The Bridge-MeetingTuesday November 13, 2018
6:00 PM until 8:30 PM
Are you looking for or do you have ideas about programs for adults with disabilities? Do you know someone that would benefit from specialized programing focused on their needs?The Southington Public Library, the Wallingford Parks and Recreation Department, the Southington Recreation Department, The ARC of Southington, have joined together to create "The Bridge" (Bridging Regional Ideas for Developing Growth and Experience). The Bridge is a group of professionals and participants that work together in facilitating and developing social events for adults with disabilities.
The objective of this group is to identify what resources are lacking as far as adults with disabilities are concerned. Because services typically end when a child turns eighteen, the need for adult programing is crucial to continue building social, emotional and life skills. The goal of this panel is to expand regional adaptive program choices specific to adults. By combining resources we can serve a wider range of people and offer more programing than by individual towns.
We ask that participants and the professionals attend the meeting only. We will have time for open discussion with parents after the meeting.
No registration required.
This meeting will be held at the Parks and Recreation Building located at 6 Fairfield Blvd. Wallingford
Location: Library Meeting Room
