A local non-profit working with developmentally disabled adults needs your help coaching the clients in the fine art of social interaction. You would de doing interactive storytelling, reading and discussing a book, leading a small group through some exercises, teaching dance steps and so on. All meant to show the clients how to behave in a group and how to relate to others in a positive, social manner.
You must be ready for frequent disruptions and changing activities, be able to demonstrate positive, respectful communication with clients, staff and other volunteers. Most importantly teaching the clients means recognizing their need to accomplish things on their own, allowing them to do as much as possible and keeping them safe.
