About Valley Socials
To help develop a more supportive relationship between the Special Needs population, businesses and Establishments who will in turn gain a loyal customer clientele base and enhance their prestige in the community. The Special Needs population will gain by becoming better consumers and integrate more into the general community.
Our vision is to “Build an enduring collaboration between Business Establishments and the Special Needs population by improving customer service and supporting the special needs community. ” There is a NEED to integrate more of this population into the community. Many of this population suffers isolation, depression, unemployment, regression in adulthood.
The Special Needs population is exploding due to the rise of diagnosed Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and better assessments today. One in 59 children will be diagnosed with ASD. About 20% (or higher) students receive Special Education services in the USA. There are approximately 3.5 million Americans with special needs in America.
About Community Awareness Certificate
If you are a Woodland Hills business owner, you may want to learn about the benefits of having your business become friendlier to customers with special needs. Understanding and meeting the needs of these individuals and their families will help create a better image for your business, and in turn, bring more business to you. The Valley Socials Program offers Community Awareness Certification in Woodland Hills, California for businesses that want to become more special needs friendly.
You can get your business involved by obtaining the Social Diamond Award that designates your business as a special needs-friendly establishment. We list you in our directory that local families use to pick places that they can go to without hesitation. Obtaining this certification will offer you and your employees with the skills and knowledge needed to serve ALL members of the local community effectively.
Special Needs Services in Woodland Hills, California
Valley Socials, a Woodland Hills group in the San Fernando Valley, hopes to facilitate healthy relationships between special needs teens and adults with the local community. Our organization is dedicated to educating those with special needs on the proper behavior and/or etiquette for specific social situations as well as the general public on how to interact with these individuals with understanding and compassion. We teach teens and adults with autism, Down syndrome and ADHD (as well as other disabilities) how to conduct themselves properly in public.
About Our Programs for Adults and Teens with Disabilities
Our supervised social group for adults and teens with special needs allows these individuals to have an active social life. We go to local museums, parks, beaches, sporting events, festivals, restaurants, movie theaters, and much more. We offer this supervision so that they can enjoy regular social activities with like-minded peers while still learning valuable lessons in the interim. We also help local businesses to learn how to provide customer service effectively with special needs customers.
Understanding Individuals with Special Needs
Our mission at Valley Social is to help foster relationships in our local community with the special needs one. We work diligently to provide a safe place for special needs teens and adults as well as their families. We offer supervision for them to have a social life in the local area with individuals like them. We always help all of our participants to overcome challenges in their social lives and to teach them proper behaviors while in certain social environments. We aim to create an overall better local community feel.
