We hope to integrate the clubs with the new O.T. area, which has stations set up for cooking, reading, art, crafts, & beauty.  We will keep you informed of each clubs progress.  We are open to any input or ideas you may have.  We need all the support we can get to start these clubs.  We could also use donations specifically related to these clubs (i.e. digital cameras, mp3 players, planting seeds, etc.).  We appreciate your support.

A New Project for OT and Crumley



We have been busy at Crumley this summer.   Milligan OT and Crumley received a Harris Grant for our “Opportunities Together” program.  Did you catch what we did there with the “O” and the “T”?  We are redesigning two of the back rooms at Crumley into specific activity centers for different occupations and training options. 


The first task has been a big one and we are still not quite done.  We needed to clean out and sort the many items that were stored back there to identify the ones that we can use for the project and the ones that either need to be tossed out or redistributed.   So here are some pictures to highlight the progress. 


Day One

This is how the rooms looked at the start.   The rooms are connected and the first three pictures are of the room on the left.  It actually looks pretty open and clear when we started.  What you don't see is all of the things stuffed in closets and boxes in somewhat random fashion.
 

  
This is the room on the right.
 
  
 The first thing we needed to do was make a mess and make a mess we did.  Here are pictures from the end of Day 3.  We had some great help on Day 3 from Rebekah and Dawn, OT students that hadn't started their level 2 Fieldwork rotations yet.  They were a great help in creating the mess you see below - which is a very necessary and helpful mess. It is definitely a work in progress.




 Days 4 and 5 were more of the same with great help from several of the Crumley members including Amanda, Justin, Jeff and Kelly.  By the end of the fifth day, we could see a bit of progress in the room on the left.





 Here are Justin, Jeff, Kelly and Amanda working on sorting papers stickers, notebooks and cards on Day 6.

By the end of Day 6, we were able to hang up signs designating the planned activity centers we will develop as we move forward. (Click on each picture to enlarge it enough to read the signs.)





Today was Day 7 and much of the day was spent dealing with books and tapes and moving big items out of the room on the right.  It actually looks worse than this picture, but we are making progress.

Let us know if you are interested in helping out as this will be an ongoing project and so far it has been a lot of fun.

OT at Crumley

This past week was another week of Level One Fieldwork OT students working at Crumley.  Molly, Jennifer and Natasha all had a great time working with the Crumley gang.  Here are some pictures of the things that were accomplished this week.

First we created a Goals Board and discussed how we could all work together to help one another accomplish their goals. 


Here are some of the accomplished goals!

Amanda writes her poetry.

Bernice makes dog toys as gifts for her favorite dog friends.


Jeff performs songs for the group.


Jerry bakes sourdough bread to share.


 Julia plays the piano for the group.


 Michael made some cute Christmas ornaments.




Randy "rides" Trigger with help from Jennifer and Darren


 Ron works on a new painting


 Sheila shares her letter with Natasha


Justin and Molly work on creating a game for Justin's new nieces.

It was a great week.  We look forward to the Crumley gang coming to visit Milligan in a couple of weeks!
