Program Lengths are:
FULL DAY, HALF DAY, SEMINAR/GUEST SPEAKER
Synopsis of a full day program:
Upon arriving to their agency, participants will be greeted with their wheelchair and receive an introduction from Jennifer McCallson and an explanation as to how the day is going to play out. Take A Seat participants will then begin using their wheelchair to go about their normal schedule, changing nothing except for the fact that they are using a wheelchair. Participants will be given a list of do’s and don’ts in addition to routine activities of daily living that they will need to accomplish throughout their day.
At the end of the day the participants will fill out exit surveys, describing and rating their experience. Additionally, together we will discuss their day as a group, focusing on what was brought to their awareness, and how their thought process shifted in order to accomplish their goals.
The concept of Take A Seat is simple and highly effective. Take A Seat challenges one’s routine point of view at tackling everyday obstacles; thus, resulting in higher goal setting standards, increased confidence, and a heightened passion to achieve.
