The Miss Exceptional program, now in its third year, is a yearlong program that provides instruction in social and communication skills to help buffer these adverse experiences. The connectedness that occurs through external relationships with a supportive, engaged community reduces the sense of isolation experienced by each program participant while increasing the positive benefits of inclusion for them. Having this program open to both girls and boys was identified as a need, and beginning in September 2018, the Exceptional Gentleman portion will be added to the Miss Exceptional program.
