The authors have found, through hands on experience, that these people can learn and can greatly benefit from interventions designed specifically to increase their skills and quality of life. The three authors believe that an activity-based program can be not only beneficial but also fun for everyone involved. With that in mind, all activities (called Scenarios in this book) are designed to be easy, adaptable, and based on specific areas of need and growth.
