Our Popcorn Chat program is designed for adults with intellectual and/or developmental disabilities, offering unique experiences for individuals of all ability levels to learn more about themselves and connect with others.
Popcorn Chat is a unique, 15-week program, created for a single, consistent group of participants with special needs (intellectual and/or developmental disabilities including autism, Down syndrome, cerebral palsy, ADHD, epilepsy, and other chromosomal abundancies.) This virtual, live class meets once a week and offers unique experiences for individuals of all ability levels to experience personal and social growth.

Facilitated by Teacher Molly, each Popcorn Chat class uses social-emotional concepts as a focus topic, providing a guided and structured discussion format for program participants. Each class is formatted to include:
Popcorn Chat participants can expect to expand and strengthen their ability to express themselves in a social situation as well as how to connect in a virtual environment. Discussion topics and activities will focus on SEL (Social and Emotional Learning), self-care/growth, and relationship building.
