For CCS San Mateo County youth and their parents
Wednesday, June 24 from 4-6PM
65 Tower Road
San Mateo, CA 94402
In this active, upbeat workshop, kids, teens and young adults practice using "People Safety" skills in everyday life situations. People Safety skills help prevent problems with peers, family, and strangers. The skills also help strengthen important relationships by improving communication. This session will focus on the safety needs of kids, teens and young adults with disabilities, who will learn together with the parents or other adult allies who are helping them learn skills for increasing independence.
Using activities and examples relevant to young people ages 8-21, we’ll:
• Notice possible problems & respond quickly
• Deal with peer pressure
• Stop unwanted attention
• Set clear, appropriate boundaries
• Act aware, calm, and confident
• Manage emotional triggers
• Get help from adults - and persist!
• Say ‘no’ in ways that are effective & practical
• Make safe choices around shunning and exclusion
• Deal confidently with mocking, teasing or taunting
• Use their own power safely to avoid hurting others
• Use practical Stranger Safety habits

There’s always a bunch of children darting between cars sporting nothing but soccer shorts in subzero temperatures. Any civilized regulations regarding social conduct and parking lot etiquette do not apply at this sports dome. It’s every man, woman, and child for themselves.
Since I was temporarily paralyzed in 2006, I have been issued a permanent handicap placard for my car. I try hard to only use my placard when I genuinely need it. My doctor qualified me as disabled because:
