Adults with special needs are often limited to what their caregivers do with them. While plenty of home activities are stimulating and helpful for adults with special needs, planning special activities and outings makes life more exciting.
Choosing activities for yourself is relatively easy. You can do anything that seems interesting. An adult with special needs often has greater restrictions due to those needs. A person who relies on a wheelchair has physical limitations to consider. Someone who is very low functioning cognitively might not be able to handle certain activities due to complexity or safety issues.
