Fun Activities For Developmentally Disabled Adults
I’m a parent of a young adult son with developmental disabilities and I’m here to give you just a few thoughts and ideas of fun activities that you could do with your developmentally disabled adult child.
1. Computer – my son loves to get on the computer and go to his “top sites” where he has stored his favorite websites of shows, youtube, games and netflix. Although it’s difficult for him to manipulate the mouse, his caregivers help him.
2. Puzzle Buzz – these are books from Highlights. Remember those? Although we send a subscription to our grand kids, David also enjoys these books
3. Local dances for special needs kids and adults. Most communities have dances and local fun actives for developmentally disabled adults.
4. Joy Prom – This special prom is fairly new. It is a huge deal! This is a full blown prom complete with all the trimmings for developmentally disabled young adults. Check and see if there is one in your area.
These are just a few ideas to get your wheels turning.
I would not be able to be as involved with my son if it were not for being able to work from home.
It’s difficult to maintain a house, be involved with your other children and take care of a developmentally disabled child or adult if you have to work outside your home. For me, it’s impossible.
That’s why I work from my computer at home.
Are you in the same boat?
