Autism Delaware will expand the Brandywine Social Club, a local YMCA recreation program for adults with disabilities, to include an additional 10 to 15 adults with autism. Very few options exist for Delaware adults with disabilities, particularly options which are autism-friendly, and the BSC has been northern Delaware's leader in recreation by holding a variety of events for 35 years. the emphasis on participant leadership, team work, and community integration, combined with the group's plans to initiate personal development workshops, provide a healthy environment for naturally observing or practicing skills that can be useful in personal relationships and employment while still giving participants a break from the demands of formal service programs or school.
