November Celebrations at IAHD

The Thanksgiving celebrations at IAHD are always favorite events as each day program prepares a special luncheon for everyone to enjoy. The smells of delicious food cooking wafts throughout all the buildings and culminates in a holiday luncheon where everyone enjoys the tastes of the foods that were prepared. This year, there were additional celebrations in recognition of Native American Heritage month at some of the Day Habilitation programs. At the Bainbridge Avenue site, the customs of various Native American tribes, including Cherokee, Navajo, Seminole and Coddo, were celebrated. The Pre-Vocational group even built a giant teepee and their presentation culminated in a dance around their “Chief,” while the audience danced and sang along.

Communication is Nothing But Fun……….……

The Speech and Language Pathologists presented Fall Communication Fun Day at all of IAHD’s Day Programs. The focus of this Communication initiative was on building vocabulary relating to Fall events, and activities were planned to teach relevant vocabulary and encourage everyone’s participation. Thanks to the efforts of the agency’s Speech Pathologists, Genevieve Jenkins, Sohodra Singh and Carolyn East, everyone had the opportunity to enhance their communication skills during the Communication Fun Days.
