Recreation & Leisure Skills

Enhance recreational/leisure skills: Play is vital to the physical, social, spiritual and emotional well being not only for children, but adults as well. There are varieties of indoor/outdoor activities that can help adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities.  These activities are based on the individual's skills, interests, and physical abilities. It is essential that members have a wide repertoire of interests and opportunities. For example, art encourages individuals to develop their creativity that can be used to entertain themselves and release stress. Other examples include scrap booking, making jewelry, listening to music, exercising, nature walking, reading, playing games and sports, or just connecting in casual conversation.
