Helping children and adults with special needs stay engaged (and have fun!) while social distancing

Through your gift, you are contributing to our mission to unlock and nurture human potential in people living with emotional, behavioral or cognitive differences.

With social distancing measures in place, parents and caregivers of youth and adults with special needs may be feeling the heat this summer, trying to find fun, engaging and educationally enriching activities for their individuals to enjoy.

Devereux National Director of Family Engagement Amy Kelly, MBA, MNM, shares activities to help your loved one learn new skills, while staying safe and healthy.

“A little creativity can go a long way in ensuring your child or adult stays active and engaged with projects and games while continuing to practice social distancing,” said Kelly.

Tip: Play games

Games such as noodle tag, Simon Says and driveway Chutes and Ladders can increase mobility and mental alertness. Organize a treasure hunt - hide 10 to 20 objects inside and/or outside the house - to help your youth or adult improve his or her memory and concentration.

Don’t forget to create a visual checklist so everyone can keep track of the hidden items.
