Disabilities Resources on the Net
Interested in getting more involved in the disabilities community? One of the great things about the Internet is how easy it has become to find out about what opportunities are available in your neck of the woods!
Here are a couple of great websites to explore:
Best Buddies Best Buddies strives to build friendships between people with and without intellectual disabilities. In addition to e-Buddies, Best Buddies offers an array of in-person friendship programs as well as a supported employment program. For information on program availability in your area, check out our website at http://www.bestbuddies.org/ .
Special Olympics For over 30 years, Special Olympics has worked to empower individuals with intellectual disabilities to become physically fit, productive and respected members of society through sports training and competition. For more information, visit http://www.specialolympics.org/ .
The Arc Since 1950, the Arc has worked to promote inclusion for individuals with cognitive, intellectual, and developmental disabilities in every community. Learn more about how you can help in your community at http://www.thearc.org/ .
The summer is winding down, and school is starting back up. That means that a lot of e-Buddies who didn't have e-mail access over the summer will be getting back on the computer.
If you and your e-Buddy haven't been in touch over the summer, why not send a quick e-mail to say hello? A lot can happen in a couple of months, so you could have a lot of catching up to do!
