WELCOME TO SPECIAL CONNECTIONS
Every individual deserves opportunities to develop and enjoy meaningful relationships and a feeling of community. Special Connections was founded to provide opportunities for young adults with special needs like Autism, Aspergers, Down Syndrome, Cerebral Palsy, Learning Disorders, Developmental Disabilities, ADD, ADHD, and OCD in the Los Angeles area to make friends, be part of a social network, embark on exciting recreational activities, feel connected with others and, most importantly, boost self-esteem, happiness, and thrive. We like to consider our young adults as Champs.
Young adults learn and grow through the experiences they have with the role models who surround them. Special Connections matches an experienced, educated, and enthusiastic mentor who has a background in developmental psychology or related field to work one on one with a Champ on socialization, developing interpersonal skills, mastering strengths and discovering new talents and interests. We consider our mentors to be Coaches who share interests with our Champs.
