A charity for people with disabilities has shifted its education and therapy programmes in line with the Government stay-at-home order.

WindReach Bermuda sent remote learning packages to people enrolled in its life skills, therapeutic riding and adult day programmes to ensure their individual education goals were still reached.

Tina Nash, the executive director of WindReach, said the creation of the packages was “truly a united and collective effort from the whole WindReach Team”.

She added: “Our goal is to pivot and shift in order to continue to meet the educational need of our participants – it’s as easy as that.”

The charity created packages to help with both group learning and individual learning for the children and seniors involved in their programmes.

WindReach team members contacted “programme partners” to make sure packages could be delivered in a safe and efficient way.

Packages also included involved “creative learning experiences” that helped developed their everyday skills.

Ms Nash explained: “When you maintain a human-centred design approach to your programmes you better understand what experiences you want to provide for your participants.

“An excellent example of this is was including fresh kale, broccoli, beans and sugar peas that our participants planted themselves for a true experiential and hands-on learning experience while at home.”

She added: “This stay-at-home order was an excellent opportunity for us to demonstrate what we know works for our participants and to support their ongoing learning goals.”

WindReach has prepared similar remote learning tool for future use.
