Info Sessions in Social Settings

“Through “Info Sessions in Social Settings,” KDC will coordinate informational sessions for families across the Cape to learn about the resources available from KDC and many other IDD service providers in the area to support their children. These info sessions will be held in fun settings (e.g., bowling alleys, arcades, mini golf) that will give their children a chance to socialize with peers, and provide the parents with some limited respite so they can participate in the info sessions in a conference room.
