INCLUSIVE SOCIAL SKILLS PROGRAM
Our Inclusive Social Skills Program is held twice per year in cooperation with the City of Temecula. The purpose of the program is to program is to provide opportunities for social engagement for special needs participants.
The program is held weekly for month in the Spring at Friendship Park in Temecula and again weekly for one month in the summer at the Eagle Soar Splash Pad in Temecula. Each occasion, we coordinate activities and sports opportunities for the participants and their families. During the summer program, we provide wheelchairs for program participants to transfer into so that they may enjoy the water in the splash pad with their peers without fear of damaging their personal mobility equipment.
Parents and/or caregiver participation is required. Siblings and therapists are welcome.
Most of our efforts pertaining to this program involve studying new approaches and developing innovative ways to implement them. We evaluate our success in this field by gathering qualitative and quantitative data, and using that information to measure shifts and changes from our baseline measurements.
We see every challenge as an opportunity, and this initiative helps us ensure that our partners are better prepared to manage the unique situations they find themselves in. We are invested in an innovative approach that empowers our community and delivers the support they need, when they need it.
