In honor of Cerebral Palsy Awareness Day, we asked Phil what he thought the world should know about Cerebral Palsy. See what he had to say.
The Painting Group at Community Experience learned about Russian painter Kandinsky and created their own impressions of his circle paintings.
The Connections Group at our day services program received a visit from a Veterinarian and a dog named Jackie. The group invited Susan, a Veterinarian, to come speak to them about her job. They also had Emily (a Marquardt volunteer) and her dog, Jackie, come so that they could all pet the dog and ask questions about her.
Each group member was given an opportunity to ask questions about Susan's job and they prepared their questions before her visit. Each person knew exactly what they wanted to say and when to say it and the whole exchange was effortless and very educational. Some of the clients were able to ask their questions independently while other clients were able to ask questions using a device that played pre-recorded questions. UCP group leaders also assisted clients by reading out loud questions that clients had written down. All group participants were very interested in what Susan had to say and listened intently.
