Finding Love and Friendship

By Samantha Kolkey

Happy Thursday! One more day until the weekend!

Weekends are typically filled with time spent with friends and loved ones–to enjoy our relationships.  Everyone hopes for stability, love, and an overall sense of belonging; however, it can be hard for individuals with learning challenges and other disabilities to find inclusion, friendship and love. Many have a difficult time with social cues, sarcasm, jokes, and identifying safety risks when in social situations.

Below is a link to a short news story that explores an application meant to help those with disabilities find love and friendship with just a few taps of a finger.
