In this week’s PWS University, Latham Centers’ Katrina Fryklund, Director of National Outreach, and Dominic Monick, Residential Supervisor, lead up to the holiday week of festivities with a discussion of activity ideas. Dominic has worked with students with PWS, ages eight to 22 for seven years. During this podcast he discusses with Katrina his favorite fitness, arts and crafts, and philanthropy geared activities that work best for our students. He describes exercises that excite the kids at Latham Centers that could be augmented to your house, or your holiday party. He also explores the topic of crafts and how to manage long-term projects over multiple days. Katrina and Dominic conclude the podcast with a discussion of the underlying themes of all activities: buy-in and an understanding who you are serving, the time and capacity of the activity and environment, and creativity and imagination.
