Description, Abstract, or Artist's Statement

Hand-in-Hand is a non-profit organization that creates fun learning experiences for both children and adults. This project utilized past research data from Hand-in-Hand to create an educational toolkit that will help the students in Hand-in-Hand’s after school program accomplish their SCL goals. SCL goals, or supports for community living, help the students at Hand-in-Hand become more comfortable in society and help develop their independence in the future by working on everyday tasks. The toolkit includes a handout, outline, and a PowerPoint presentation with a list of indoor and outdoor activities appropriate for the Hand-in-Hand students. This toolkit was provided to the agency so that staff can help students choose activities when there is nothing else planned for the day. This project is important because it incorporates the goals of the students with past research to find the best programs and activities that will be both educational and promote a fun learning environment.
