Circles II

DSA is proud to introduce Circles classes to members. Circles has all new videos, booklets, and learning tools in 2019! The Circles Curriculum teaches boundaries and relationship-specific behaviors, using a simple multi-layer circle diagram. The Down Syndrome Alliance class series - "Circles II" - is open to young adults and adults over 18 who have an intellectual disabilities who have taken Circles I before and are ready to expand on each Circle. The most prevalent expansion topic is about relationships and how they can change A.K.A. "moving Circles" Ex.: When does an acquaintance become a friend? What different Circle would a friend go in if they betrayed your trust? Each class will focus on a different colored circle so please plan for students to attend all 3 classes in the series (Dec. 2, 9, 16). The $30 fee is for all 3 classes. Parents are welcome to wait at the CEC 6-7 p.m. outside of the classroom or in any common areas in the building. Parents should plan to join students after class on the last evening to receive a summary of sessions in order to help prompt materials for students when needed. Class participants and parents are also welcome to join the private Facebook group for the class so we can all share information and resources regarding the materials. Parking is in Lot E, located directly in front of the clock tower and the Barbara Weitz CEC. Act fast on registration! This is a small-group with limited RSVP's.
