Reviews

This book is very practical in its approach, and it begins with a note on how to use it...This book can be used as a valuable general resource book. I found it to be very practical, with really useful tips and hints for any carer/leader of an activity programme. Activities need to be varied and interesting, and there are excellent ideas in this book for anyone starting off in the field of activation - they would find it a very useful resource... each activity is very structurally described and it would help in organising an activity session. I would recommend the book to anyone working with adults, either in activity centres or clubs. -- The Frontline of Learning Disability This book is a fantastic resource, one which has truly inspired and helped us to become more creative when devising activities for adults with learning disabilities and has our full recommendation. Activities for Adults with Learning Disabilities can be used in a variety of settings and by a range of professionals, such as nurses, support workers and activity co-ordinators, as well as by friends, parents and carers... In conclusion if you are looking for a book on activities for adults with learning disabilites then look no further, as this is the only book we have come across that is instructive, user friendly and enjoyable. -- PMLD Journal Activities for Adults with Learning Disabilities is full of enough games, crafts and events to keep any social club busy for months... The book was written by two teachers who have been involved with Gateway clubs for many years... The book is a useful resource for any day centre or social club. -- Viewpoint Activities for Adults with Learning Disabilities is a comprehensive and well written book. Authors Helen Sonnet and Ann Taylor have given, and continue to give, so freely of their time and energy to enhance the lives of people with a learning disability and to inspire other people so to do. This is an invaluable reference book and a 'must have' for all Gateway Clubs and similar organisations. -- Royal Mencap Trustee
