Activity Sessions

M.A.P.S. is a service for people with learning disabilities, providing activities and opportunities
.
This project was started in 2006, and will soon be entering it's 7th year. I saw that the needs of people with learning disabilities were not being met by the local authority, and decided to do something about this.
.
Since then, over 600 people have used the services that I provide, meaning that M.A.P.S. is developing into a very important community project.
.
We are able to give people a positive outlook on life, as we are helping them gain new experiences, make new friends, and come to a place where they are valued.
.
The clients are developing their personal, social, and negotiating skills through various activities.
.
Two examples of this are: The Wii computer means that individuals have to develop “turn-taking” and “negotiating skills”, as well as social and physical skills in order to play, and the Bingo activity promotes “speaking out” and “assertiveness”.
