It is hard to believe that we have been in our new location just over a year. All of the clients transitioned smoothly into the new environment with the help of dedicated staff. Our new room has taken shape, and now displays a number of activities and projects. Clients have become familiar with the building, developed routines and feel very much at home.
Our relocation has opened the door for clients in the Stepping Stones program to interact more with peers. There has been an increase in shared activities between the two programs. Clients from both programs have shared health education classes and enjoyed various social events and luncheons together.
Clients in the Stepping Stones program were involved in planning and putting together a presentation on the planets. Our walls are filled with pictures from the NASA space program and our study of the planets. If while standing in our room you should look up, you will see all of the planets floating from our ceiling.
We recently moved some of the pictures on our walls to make room for the installation of a brand new Smart Board. Additionally, we are introducing iPads to clients in the adult programs. We are excited to introduce the clients to more technology that can be used for instructional purposes, communication, exploration and fun.
