Disability Services and Resources
Our goal is to ensure Marylanders with developmental disabilities and their families can access resources and support to live self-determined lives. CCACC is partnering with Doreen Shing to develop and lead a community-based support system for people with developmental disabilities.
The Program for Meaningful Interaction and Social Engagement (PROMISE) consists of five main activities including board game, gross motor, literacy, art, and free play.
Before and after each activity we will have a group discussion that discusses five different social skills
Emotion identification and regulation
