Will walks to the Train Station
Within our weekly work sessions, we have been targeting module activities that Will and his family have chosen from PLS’s Menu of Activities. Currently, he is working on three different module activities with me in a 1:1 capacity. These modules are:
Will has chosen (with support from PLS, his mum and his support workers) specific areas and places to target when it comes to safety awareness in his day to day life in the community. One of these includes walking from the front door of his home to the train station which takes him to and from work experience placements twice every week with his support workers. He enjoys taking photos, writing stories and keeping record of what he actively does from one day to the next.
Will is also currently creating a memory and sequencing game which uses the photos we have been taking on our walks together. This focuses on areas and places where he uses specific safety awareness skills and strategies he already has in his repertoire, adding and adapting new skills and strategies that help target his day to day usage.
Here is Will’s story and reflective piece of writing about his walk to the train station using Safety Awareness skills and strategies.
