Once established into the Greater Expectations program the individual is integrated into our Connection Club groups. This allows them to apply skills obtained and studied in the Greater Expectations program into real situations with other individuals facing the same challenges. Research states if we have a real experience with another person, this allows the brain to retain the skills and relate it back to a meaningful memory.
The Connections Club groups provide applicable experiences in structured work settings which in turn facilitates meaningful connections. We meet as social groups to further work on the foundations of social thinking, life skills, effective communication, advocacy and organizational skills. These groups are also designed to help individuals build stronger relationships while having the opportunity to engage in enjoyable events.
