Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this proposed program was to link with a local host agency, discover a potential funding source and write a grant in order to obtain funding for a support group for families of individuals with developmental disabilities (DD). Moreover, the purpose of the project was to provide funding for a family support group by partnering with South Central Los Angeles Regional Center (SCLARC). The program will be implemented at SCLARC, located in Los Angeles, CA. The support group was designed to provide families with interventions, resources, and the skills needed to continue caring for family members with DDs in the best way possible without reaching burnout. A literature review was conducted to thoroughly study the impact DDs have on the affected individuals and their family members. Research demonstrates that there are numerous families in need of emotional, social, and educational support as it also suggest the need of interventions for families.
