enjoying community activities is possible for people with special needs: accompany them, if appropriate; inform facilitator in advance,when possible; think about and communicate any needed accommodations/ modifications; research interests; allow for acclimation; set considerate participation timeframe(30 min.) and build on time with each visit; have preferred foods; wear comfortable clothing; discuss/show vids, photos,books as prep; invite relative/ friend for 'peer- modeling' and fun; BE PATIENT. ENJOY!
