We will present a program model that supports adults with Developmental Disabilities to enjoy leisure, recreation and educational opportunities in an inclusive, community environment. This is a consumer driven model that meets individuals where they are at, and encourages them to pursue opportunities naturally occurring within their communities. This model provides a degree of equity that would be the standard for anyone within that community. By the end of this session participants will be able to... 1) implement a program model that supports young adults ages 16 and above to transition successfully into various opportunities within their communities. 2)Facilitate individuals desires to pursue what they enjoy doing. 3)Have marketing strategies to communicate information to individuals and those who support them.
