Developmental Connections is committed to supporting schools and communities to ensure the healthy social development of students.
Developmental Connections is a nonprofit organization designed to support children with developmental disorders (i.e., Aspergers, Autism, ADHD, Sensory Integration Disorder, etc). While a growing number of public and private resources provide support to these children for medical and academic concerns, the primary focus of Developmental Connections this year is to support a dangerously underfunded need -social skills development. Every year, thousands of socially impaired students graduate from high school with a diploma, but without the social ability to succeed in life. To fill this critical gap, we have launched Marvin's Club: Social Skills in Schools, a program to teach public school PTA/PTOs how to run social skills enrichment programs for their schools. Marvin's Club is designed to teach developmentally delayed students social and recreational skills while involving neurotypical peers and enhancing community awareness.
