My pal Scott Butki does amazing work with kids with intellectual disabilities. If you are in Austin, Texas, and know somebody who needs help caring for and teaching such children, you can contact Scott!
Here is an example of Scott at work!
Scott comments: “In this video, a client I worked with for four years speaks about some of the work we did together with regard to understanding how to use money and, more generally, how to live more independently. We demonstrate how some creativity and fun can make it easier for the client to want to learn these skills. We play a game about spending, and then apply what he’s learned in the real world, in this case, getting money from an ATM and spending it to get a haircut.”
