Each Lesson plan - whether used for Activities of Daily Living or Leisure Activities - are meant as general guidelines and suggestions and do not guarantee success. Every person has his or her own unique physical / cognitive abilities and needs. How a participant responds to an activity will dictate how the Activity Leader will continue to modify or adapt a Lesson Plan to meet individual participants' needs and abilities - now and in the future. The Lesson Plan should be ever-changing. It is meant to be written on and to note the changes you may have made from the original plan so that the next person working with the participant can follow your modifications with the goal of recreating positive experiences. Information included in each Lesson Plan:
Objective: To provide meaningful, purposeful activities that will engage participants
Materials: Suggested materials/resources to use with this program
Activity Outline: Step-by-step instructions to complete the program
Please enjoy the activities offered and enjoy the benefits of engaging your loved one.
