Community Intellectual Disability Team to host Exceptional Fall event

Thursday 29 September 2022: Bermuda Hospitals Board’s Community Intellectual Disability Team (CIDT) will be hosting Exceptional Fall BBQ Celebration on Saturday 1 October following postponement of the Exceptional Summer BBQ Celebration, which was slated for the end of August.

“This is the second social event we’ve created this year specifically for our intellectual disability community and their families,” said Chris Cunningham, manager of CIDT. “To mark the first anniversary of our team, we held A Fete of Exceptionalities in June at the Warwick Parish Council Field. That was so well received that we decided to create another social event.”

Exceptional Fall BBQ Celebration will take place on Saturday 1 October at Clearwater Beach from 11am-2pm.

“The main objectives of these events are to provide our clients with safe space for meaningful interaction with the general community and their peers,” said Morrisa Rogers, clinical director of intellectual disability. “It’s our hope that other event organisers will, through our example, understand how to make inclusion possible for those with intellectual and/or developmental disabilities. Diversity and inclusion have far reaching positive effects on all members of our community.”
