I have been involved in networking with families and support groups for life long learning programs. These programs are intended to keep people active, engaged and involved in the community, focusing on activities which are meaningful for the person involved. This is not job training and finding a job is not the goal of this type of program. The goal is for the person involved to build relationships and participate in meaningful activities which are based on that person’s interests and desires.
By focusing on life long learning and engaging the person with their interests, we are experiencing true integration and inclusion.
