Making choices is an essential part of functioning independently as an adult in society. We support our members with activities specifically directed towards helping them to make choices in their days. When one is following activities of choice, he or she is typically more motivated and less likely to engage in challenging behaviours.
Flexible thinking is being able to adapt to new situations, break down complex tasks into simpler tasks, improvise, and shift strategies to meet different types of challenges. We support our members in learning flexible thinking strategies so that they can come up with solutions to solve real-world problems or to be able to see another person’s viewpoint or theory of mind. Having flexible thinking supports our members in managing and coping with change and unexpected situations.
We support our members to practice self regulation strategies so that they can identify signs of anxiety and take actions to change negative thoughts into positive thoughts, to change negative feelings, and manage anxiety and overwhelming motions while in the community settings.
