Touchstones For Adults with Disabilities
“The Touchstones Discussion Project at Liberty Place continues to be a wonderful addition to our programming. The text allows for the exploration of many ideas, participation is high, and the residents really enjoy the stories. Touchstones is a valuable learning tool that is allowing our residents to expand their knowledge.”
Touchstones materials are being used in a variety of programs designed to assist adults with disabilities. Touchstones curricula has been used by groups of adults with varying degrees of cognitive disabilities—such as autism, Down Syndrome, traumatic brain injury, ADD, and others—to assist the development and growth of fundament skills including attentive listening, speaking clearly, reasoning carefully, taking on leadership roles, increase comprehension, collaborative problem solving, and teamwork.
Langston Green, a residential community for adults with intellectual disabilities in Anne Arundel County, started using volumes Touchstones B and Courage to Care: Building Community Through Service. Since their implementation in February 2018, they have also added Touchstones C and Touchpebbles A.
Liberty Place, a nonprofit corporation in Whitehall, MT that assists people who have been severely impaired by brain injuries, added Touchstones volumes Touchstones A and Courage to Care: Building Community Through Service to their program in October 2017.
