Build Your Skills

The Build Your Skills Program is designed for adults looking to improve and maintain life skills and activities. With both recreation and education sessions participants get to try new activities and skills they will use in daily living. 

During the education sessions, the group will use interactive learning and presentations to learn about topics such as goal setting, nutrition, communication, hygiene, safety, and more. 

During the recreation sessions, participants will have hands-on experiences with cooking, science experiments, fitness, arts and crafts, and opportunities to try programs offered at Easter Seals NL such as Wheelchair Basketball, Boccia, Music, and more.

The Adult Day program runs on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm with an hour lunch. Participants are responsible for bringing their own lunch and snacks.

  • Stories of Success

“When my son was younger he and his friends used to play all the time. As his friends grew up they started to play stand-up sports and he began to feel left out. This all changed when he found Easter Seals. Here he feels included with life-long friends. I can’t describe the pride I feel when I see him laughing at wheelchair basketball.”
