Intentional Inclusion: Cultivating Circles of Support
Who among us doesn't have a tribe, village, or a network or circle of friends that support us? In good times and challenging ones, we use circles of support to help us out. The same goes for people with disabilities, only they are sometimes even more intentional in seeking out just the right people to be part of their circle. Come hear from a parent and sibling about how they have used Circles of Support with their son and brother and how it's also a model that has been used in schools and communities around the country.
