Next Chapter Book Club
Expand the social networks of youth and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) through participation in community-based book clubs.
Texas Advocates’ Next Chapter Book Club is providing people with IDD from multicultural communities with meaningful opportunities to build social networks and enhance their reading skills. By making choices about reading materials and other club materials, participants can make independent decisions and shape their experiences as club members. Through the launch of 30 book clubs in five counties, the project gives people with IDD an enjoyable way to interact with friends, meet new people, deepen their appreciation of reading, and boost their self-confidence and decision-making abilities.
