Growing Personal Networks

You want your child to grow more extensive personal networks.

How do I know this?  You told me so!

Personal networking was the #1 topic of  interest in our Parent Survey.

How wise you are!

It takes intentional effort to broaden and deepen personal networks. But the relationships that grow from them can enrich your life – and your child’s life – beyond all expectations.

Opportunities for employment, community service, recreation, self determination, wellness, and overall quality of life expand when our circle includes more than immediate family and paid service providers.

In this section, you’ll find free tools that will help your child grow life-enriching personal networks.

How this works

We’ll add new tools to this section regularly. Want to know about new additions? Sign up for our transition news and resources (see blue arrow upper right).
