Curious about what we’ve been up to in a few of our Leeds social skills workshops recently? Well fear not as we’ve summarised a few of the latest member-led projects below:
Friday Cookery, budgetting & Planning workshop – Achievement Line
A big congratulations to all of our fabulous members and staff who contributed and collaborated towards the achievement line in preparation for World Autism Awareness Day.
The line will remain up for another month so there’s still plenty of time for members and staff to continue reading, discussing and learning from new and different perspectives.
As one of our members has said: “I enjoy attending SAS because the members and staff are all friendly, and this is the only time I get out of the house.”
Tuesday Social Skills workshop – The Senses
In the social skills workshop in Leeds we have just completed our project on the senses. It has been a fantastic topic to cover and as one members said “We are all different” and “our sensory experiences impact on us in different ways”.
For example, some individuals hate loud noises, strong smells and love symmetry and order (I love the smell of fried onions and am the messiest person on the planet!). We also discussed what it would be like to lose one of our senses and how it might make us feel. All members participated in a blindfolded-guild challenge, name that sound and guess the object without peeking!
We also made some fun items such as glitter shakers and sensory sticks…learning some new vocabulary along the way.
