Fighting Social Isolation
During this time of isolation, the Chick-Fil-A Leader Academy from Greenfield School in Wilson would like to offer socialization options for our school aged friends with special needs!
Zoom Circle of Friends
Together we will offer socialization gatherings through a Zoom format to WhirliDog Friends with special needs. These gathering are scheduled for Thursdays from 3:30 to 4:00. The students are looking forward to leading activities that will engage their new friends. Parents of special needs students who are interested in having their child participate in these friendship circles should email us through our contact page. When you email us we will be able to send you a Zoom invitation link to our next meeting!
Students from Greenfield and Community Supporters are busy making videos designed to engage our special friends. As more videos are updated announcements will be made on our Facebook page or you can visit our site to see what is available.
1-1 Special Buddy Option
If your special needs child is having a difficult time with being isolated some of the Greenfield Students would like to be their special buddy with a once a week Face Time meeting. If you are interested in this option, contact us through our website link; https://www.whirlidogs.com/index.php/contact-us-2/. Let us know how old they are, strengths, needs, challenges, things they like to do etc. The advisors at Greenfield will use this information to match them with a student to try to meet those needs.
