Resources for Identifying and Meeting Social Needs
Yes I Can Social Inclusion Program. Developed at the Institute on Community Integration, this year-long, 20-module curriculum fosters the social inclusion of junior and senior high school students with disabilities. Students with and without disabilities gather for weekly classroom instruction and community experiences that increase understanding of the social inclusion needs and challenges of persons with disabilities. During the program, each student with a disability who desires to be more socially included is paired with another student who serves as an inclusion facilitator; through weekly outings planned by each pair they learn to identify and remove or minimize barriers to social inclusion and create social opportunities. Available from the Institute on Community Integration at 612/624-4512 or http://ici.umn.edu/products.
