Blooming With Friends is a non-profit organization to help children on the spectrum have a friend. The friend of the child with special needs with get volunteer hours and learn patience and have more of an understanding of what these children go through on the daily. The child on the spectrum will learn social skills and improve their speech by having someone listen to them and learn from them. This new buddy system will have a planned schedule to meet as many times as they would like. Spending time with someone who has more challenges will help the partner have a better perspective on how life is for someone else that needs to be taught things that others learn naturally.
I am different, not less.
We want children on the spectrum to have an opportunity to make friends.
