We do not live in your area but this kind of program sounds exactly like what my 21 year old daughter needs. She has a learning disability and stuggles to make friends and to keep them. She never goes out except to her part-time job. Does anyone know of a program like this in the Lexington, Kentucky area?

My 11 year old son is really active in special olympics and has a group of children his age that are both male and female and this is the their social group. The kids even participate with the older athletic in a social rem with dances and trips they all have a great time together. So, check out your local special olympics program. If you can not locate one email me back, I will help you.

Thanks,

Sara
