Narrative

WIDENING THE CIRCLE can help you by: 

1.  Providing "Introduction to Friends" workshops to help individuals, family members and staff think about and embrace the undeniable truth that relationships are an essential part of living well for everyone.  We want to inspire people to champion this belief.  These workshops are facilitated by project staff and/or individuals (with and without disabilities) who have completed our train-the-trainer events.  

2.  Providing train-the-trainer opportunities to parents, staff and people with disabilities themselves, to learn how to help spread the word about the importance of friendships between people with and without disabilities and how those relationships can be achiebed.

3.  Providing specific consultation/training on individual, program or agnency levels to better ensure community connections and friendships.
