The IDD community that Best Buddies serves includes, but is not limited to, people with Down syndrome, autism, Fragile X, Williams syndrome, cerebral palsy, traumatic brain injury, and other undiagnosed disabilities. Best
Buddies is the world’s largest organization dedicated to ending the social, physical, and economic isolation of the 200 million people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD). Our programs empower the special abilities of people with IDD by helping them form meaningful friendships with their peers, secure successful jobs, live independently, improve public speaking, self-advocacy and communication skills, and feel valued by society. We here at LBJ MS started our chapter in 2017 and are going strong! Please come and check out our Best Buddies Chapter every month! You can go on to to learn more and even sign-up! T-Shirts are always on sale at LBJ MS for $12-$15 dollars! We wear our Best Buddies T-Shirts every Wednesday as our Uniform shirt! On the 3 rd Wednesday of the month, we sit together at the Best Buddies Lunch Table and eat together, and later that night we have our Family Meeting at 6:30 pm in the Media Center!
