How can I help my daughter interact with people with developmental disabilities?

I'd like for my 7-year-old to know people with developmental disabilities, and to feel comfortable interacting with them. Ideally she'd have semi-regular interactions with kids roughly her age, doing some kid-type activity, but I haven't had much luck looking for such situations. I've called a few places that provide services to people with disabilities, and the special ed office at her school, but I haven't been able to find anything, and people generally seem kind of confused about what it is I'm looking for. I'd like some suggestions for how else I could try to create this. I'm in Anchorage, AK.
