NSSA Adult Service clients have a new project – they have been creating the “Piece of Hope” product line, which consists of an all organic Body Butter & Body Scrub. The production of this product gives each of our Adult clients an opportunity to learn new skills and utilize individual strengths, while being a productive member of a team.
Skills they are learning and utilizing include:
Pouring and mixing
Units of measure
Packaging and labeling
Identification and proper use of utensils and appliances
Taking turns and waiting
Asking for assistance
Independently initiating tasks
Set up and clean up
These skills help foster independence, confidence and pride. While photographing them in action last week, one client proudly stated “I can do this by myself,” and there were many big smiles around the worktable.
