S.T.R.I.V.E members will participate in social events used to reinforce independence. Events including Movie&A Meal, FormalDances, FamilyFun,and GameDays. These events will create opportunties for adults with disabilities to gather together within their community. The goal is to use socialization as the foundation to enhance life skills. Skills such as being able to communication their wants and needs, write a letter/or a resume', make decision, budget, live independently, and obtain Information via technology. The hope is that by enhancing life skills, S.T.R.I.V.E members will solidify their independence.
Versatility is the ability to adapt to changes. Once an individual gets used to completing tasks in the exact someway each time, it becomes a challenge when circumstances require that changes be made. Studies show that individuals with disabilities find adapting to changes difficult. They often rely on routines taught by parents, teachers, and/or caregivers. Asking individuals with disabilities to make changes to learned routines can be challenging. S.T.R.I.V.E members will not only gather together once a month for social events, they will also participate in monthly meetings. At these monthly meetings, S.T.R.I.V.E members will get an opportunity to discuss their challenges. The purpose of the discussions is to provide members with supports, encouragement, and guidance from their peers.
STRIVING towards Exceptional Excellence is the ultimate goal of S.T.R.I.V.E-Socialize to Reinforce Independence, Versatility, and Exceptional Excellence. Excetional Excellence_A Different Kind of Greatness!
