The facilitator Cynde Vaughn's (MSW) intent for this class is to provide appropriate education and support to ensure that young people with IDD learn how to integrate themselves in the community, avoid exploitative relationships, and expand their social circle.

Participants will learn how to:

• Deal with anxiety in social situations.

• Understand the difference between close friends vs. social friends.

• Be yourself around others without feeling embarrassed.

• Make small talk and get to know new people.

• Gauge body language and read social cues.

• Be a good friend – develop long-term relationships, trust, and bonds.

• Recognize exploitation, set boundaries, and end a relationship if appropriate.

Plan a Party!! Participants will apply what they learn in class, establish a theme, create a budget, plan entertainment, and ultimately host a party for their friends!!
