Various Kinds of Programs for Teens with Disabilities
Being a teenager is not easy. In today’s day and age, teenagers have various pressures to fit in, to be liked and accepted. Being a teen with a disability can be even more challenging.
“Because there is no single definition, estimates of the number of youth with disabilities living in the U.S. vary. The National Survey of Children with Special Health Care Needs identified nearly 1 in 5 children ages 12-17 as having special healthcare needs.” Additionally, “… more than a third (35 percent) of adolescents with special healthcare needs have three or more chronic conditions” that can limit activity.
At Valley Socials, we work with teens with disabilities, empowering them by tapping into their strengths and talents. We also provide teens with disabilities with an outlet to express their true selves, ensuring that self-esteem, confidence, and pride are supported.
