Young people with disabilities have three choices on social:
- not to attend,
- attend being excluded,
- attend risking cyberbullying.
Anyone involved in disability has three choices:

Mindbook is an example of social responsibility.
Now close your eyes, stop the proceedings and mixed meetic (a social to meet people with similar aspirations and aptitudes/) and facebook think the quantity of relationships that were born and becamee friendships or love affairs.
Now imagine all that potential to create relationships in fragile or disabled persons. To protect the environment, the registration will be carried out by a (psychologist) that, subject to the agreement with the family of the person with disabilities, will buy an account. To develop Mindbook profile requires that the trader, in addition to personal data, insert the ICD 10 code of student diagnosis (mental retardation, autism, etc ...) and fill in detail an observation checklist developed in collaboration with the Department of psychology at the University of Parma.Once the registration will be completed, the psychologist, together with the family, includes other users on social network, by adding them as friends, founding groups, organized according to the skill and cognitive level.
In total the Mindbook subscription can't go on more than 3 years, in this time, the psychologist must teach the student to return to use (safer and more friends) others social.
Mindbook will be structured into three levels of increasing difficulty.
Basic: for boys under the age of 16 years or with severe disabilities. Social networking for families and agencies that share similar issues to create opportunities for development of territorial services, make inquiries to public administrations and networking needs.
Friend: has the function to "teach" the student using a social network (wait for the answer before writing a new message, write to people who share an interest, etc.) during this phase the goal is to made real relationships and to develop friendships in a protected and risk-free environment.
Intimity: reserved for more than 16 years old people, is accessible only after passing the level Friend; is the first level in which the student has access without professional supervision directly from his mobile.
Intimity wants to encourage the development of sincere relationships between students who have similar interests and abilities.
