Life Skills Room
In the Life Skills area we do as it states on the tin, learn new and improve on existing life skills. We work on personal targets, confidence and independence. Our learners choose a personal target they would like to work on and we, as a team, work on this through various activities throughout the year. This can range from confidence building in public to handling money or even learning a new language! We implement this in real life settings and in the past this has included having a market stall in town, taking part in cooking lessons and healthy food shopping on a budget.
As much as we work on personal targets we thrive at working as a team in group activities and even have an annual bucket list we do together. We work on a lot of communication games and have previously made our own communication board games, as we have such a varied group of learners we love to get everyone working together and feeling comfortable with one another.
We also love to let loose and many of our afternoons are spent doing dancercise and karaoke sessions! We often help out on making props for the yearly Enable plays and love to decorate our area for every season with Halloween and Christmas being our firm favourites! We would keep them up all year if we could!
