Middle and high school years are a time of transition for many students, but for students with disabilities that transition can be marked with difficulty. VersAbility’s Ability Club systematically reinforces social skills needed to build meaningful relationships for students with autism, intellectual disabilities, and other social or communication disorders. The Ability Club is a 6-week program led by VersAbility’s Positive Behavior Support Facilitator with peer mentoring from high school students and college volunteers. To date, over 20 students with disabilities have improved their social, conversational, turn-taking, and routine skills in order to build meaningful relationships. Ability Club also focuses on personal safety within the community, particularly when engaging with first responders. Many families share that their most memorable experience with the Ability Club is the excitement their child has to come and participate and the positive effects they see. If your child would like to participate in the Ability Club, please contact Bettie Bell for information on our next session at (757) 810-6260 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Registration for a six-week session is $25.
