What if I told you that you could turn 1 idea into more than 30 meaningful activities for the people you serve...in 60 seconds flat!
I'm totally serious!
I teach these techniques in my How to Create a Year's Worth of Activities from Just a Few Interests training...but check out this video I did for the Quillo app for a sneak peek of how it's done.
In this video I name 16 activities, many of which can be separated into multiple activities.
And if you follow the logic behind my approach, you can easily create even more. In fact, in my training, I will show you how to fill a full year's calendar from just a few interests.
I'm talking a combination of integrated, social, self-directed, outcome achieving, serious learning, and just for fun activities that are individualized, support choice, and those you serve will find some of them to be so much fun they'll want to do them again and again.

Rita went everywhere everyone else did, and then some. Shopping, church, camp, the Y, bowling, amusement parks, fairs, concerts, movies, theater, parks, zoos, other states, simply everywhere. Her 50 years on this planet were simply filled with adventures.
At just 5 years my senior, we interacted more as cousins than aunt and niece. And because of our close relationship, I often got to go on these adventures too. It was glorious! We met so many people and had so much fun.
Yet, despite a life of constant and diverse quests, there was one place Rita never went.
Rita, never once, went "into the community".
