The State Council on Developmental Disabilities (SCDD) presents: A Festival of Learning and Ideas: Student and Young Adult Experience with Friends and Classmates on Tuesday, February 16, 2021 from 3:30 to 5 p.m.
Please join SCDD as they learn from Kavita and Kishan Sreedhar about Pragnya in San Jose, California. Pragnya serves neurodiverse individuals, those with intellectual and developmental differences (ID/DD) by creating acculturation and integration experiences alongside their neurotypical peers, our Allies. Trained in the unique Ally Support Program, developed by the co-founder Kishan, the Ally Program incorporates person centered thinking and wisdom skills to help allies better understand neurodiverse community. Allies reach out and support people as to integrate into mainstream society. Allies are part of the natural circle of support, empowering individuals to lead lives of dignity and respect.
