Alfie's Life Skills Centre Experience

Aflie has been coming to the Life Skills Centre three times a week for over 2 years, attending a mix of Cooking, Multimedia and Art sessions whilst also using the gym and taking in a weekly Yoga class; he also spends time relaxing in the Spa and Sensory Studio.

Alfie is very creative. He is engaged and enthusiastic during sessions and makes clear independent choices on what he wants to do.

In Multimedia, for example he has gained considerable new technical skills - controlling the mouse pointer using a stylus has enabled him to make and communicate clear and distinct choices which has obvious benefits for all areas of Alfie’s life in the future.

His achievements in the gym have also been very impressive; he recently completed an ‘Ultra Marathon Challenge’ and has made impressive gains in terms of the weight he can now lift and the full range of movement he is now able to use over a greater distance on machines like the Stepper.
