We continue to make changes to our new location in building G. We have configured the space to allow for vocational activities and small group activities, as well as independent living skills instruction. To facilitate the independent living skills instruction we have used one half of the room and arranged a dining area, sitting area, laundry area, and an area with a small bed. We will soon add a sink to this configuration for meal preparation activities.
Vocational Update: The Pelican Pen company continues to provide the program with corkscrews to assemble. A number of adults have learned this job and assemble thousands per month independently.
Dear Parents, I hope the summer was wonderfully relaxing and fruitful for you all. It is exciting to begin once again the Parents Groups for the BCSS workshops. I missed them and have been looking forward to participating with all of you in mutual support concerning your family members.
The groups occur once a month, usually on the first Monday (for Wood-Ridge), first Wednesday (for Paramus), and first Thursday (for Rockleigh). Because of workshop closures and other logistics there are a few group meetings that will be on another day. They are underlined on the chart below. As always all are welcome. Please make an effort to attend so that you can give and receive mutual support from each other. What you don’t know, someone else does. And what you do know, someone else needs to ask you.
Looking forward to seeing everybody,
Simcha Willick, Counselor
