Friendships and Community Connections between People with and without Developmental Disabilities

Book

True community inclusion is much more than placing an individual with a disability in a community setting, it also means belonging and being in close friendships with other community members without disabilities. This book gleans principles from successful experiences to help others build relationships of their own through natural social connections and explores how friendships can enhance the lives of every individual in the community. Each author considers a different facet of friendship, such as: work and leisure relationships, gender related expectations, community associations and groups, and the roles of love, affection and intimacy. All in all, it is an inspiring book that provides a deeper understanding of how to help build lasting friendships. Keyword: Friendship
