Eileen O’Neill, Behaviorist, will lead this training session for those interested in becoming a teen Peer Mentor for youth with special needs or simply learning more about youth with special needs in your local community. You will learn how various developmental disabilities such as autism, ADHD, visual, hearing and/or physical impairments or other conditions impact how children play and learn. Beyond learning how and why these children see their world differently, you will learn more about how to interact and work with them and learn techniques to help these children have enjoyable sports and other recreation experiences. A certificate of completion will be awarded to those who attend. This training will also enable you to work as a Peer Mentor volunteer in any of our special needs programs to be offered in the near future in Maplewood or in programs offered by others that we might be affiliated with, depending on need for mentors for a specific program/activity. Attendees who go on to mentor receive credit for community service and gain valuable leadership experience while contributing to the lives of special youth in the community.

Space is limited, and pre-registration is required.
