This presentation, from the perspective of a long-time member of a 12-step recovery program and special educator, will address the common needs of persons with mental retardation and accommodations (using educational, research-based strategies) to assist individuals to access and participate actively in a program of recovery. This session will discuss the basics of the twelve-step program of recovery, the academic, social, communication and mental demands of these programs, as well as simple accommodations to enhance learning, implementation and understanding.
