The Circle of Friends is an innovative mentoring program matching Special Education students with regular education peers. Everyone wants to belong. This is most evident in teens. They look for acceptance in school, at work, and in the community. Seeking acceptance often leads students to do mischievous things they might not normally do and then later regret. Students with special needs are no different. They want to be accepted, loved, and part of the crowd. The Circle of Friends is meant to help develop that acceptance.
Students are not charged to be part of Circle of Friends. Occasionally special activities will have a small fee for those who choose to participate. AbilityPoint appreciates all the donors, companies and foundations who support this valuable program.
