Blossom Buddies Autumn 2015
After a successful pilot in the Spring we are now in the middle of a ten week programme of ‘Blossom Buddies’. Blossom Buddies is our teen social group which gives teenagers with intellectual disabilities the chance to hang out, make friends and basically just be teenagers! Two groups of Blossom Buddies have been meeting up weekly in Raheny. One group is exploring road safety and independent travel skills. They discussed the issues surrounding road safety and came up with their own guidelines on how to be safe when getting around. The other group is busy working on shopping skills and how to visit and order at cafés. Some of the teens are now busy preparing for Blossom’s Christmas Tree Lighting Event in Raheny on Sunday 22nd at 3.30pm. The Buddies will be helping to sell Blossom gifts on the day and would like to welcome everyone along to help celebrate the start of the festive season with them.
