Mission Statement

The mission of Circle of Friends is to provide inclusion for students with disabilities on school campuses by establishing the understanding and acceptance of differences, building genuine friendships, decreasing bullying and making a significant social impact within communities nationwide.

Description

Circle of Friends (CoF) is a social and language skills program of inclusion that provides valuable support to students with special needs. It is based on the establishment of friendships between students with disabilities and their trained, non-disabled peers as both interact meaningfully in a natural environment.

CoF provides a systematic approach to teaching and supporting the social and life skills that enable students with disabilities to lead productive and engaged lives. This quality sets us apart from organizations that only build connections between peers.
