The young adults who live at the Garden Site at Underley are here because they need a secluded and very personalised environment to meet their needs. As a result it is always a challenge to give them community based activity which meets their needs. We have decided that for some of the time we have brought leisure activity to the young adults and their socialisation is being planned in small steps – starting with socialising with the other three young adults who live with us.
The first activity was on a windy and wet Saturday night in February. We made use of the dining room and studio at school and gave the young adults a movie night with hot dogs, popcorn and drinks and a showing of the film Shrek.
All the young adults managed to attend.
Our next planned session is a spa day with lots of sensory experiences tailored to the young adults. So watch this space for more news!
