Criteria

The programme is open to young people and their families all across Ireland

Young person must have a diagnosed physical or developmental disability and be aged 15 – 25.

The family must make a commitment to attend one training session and four face to face / zoom meetings that will allow us to facilitate person-centred reviews, set action-focused goals and develop a one-page profile for the young person.

The Down Syndrome Centre is delighted to share Blossom Ireland’s Connect Programme among our families as we recognise the importance of such programmes for young people with an intellectual disability and their families especially during times of transition.  Planning for any young person’s future is vital for success and more so when the young person has additional needs.  Blossoms Connect Programme is the perfect tool to assist in developing short and long-term goals, helping them to achieve the life they want to live.
