Social Skilling

Cooking classes

Our cooking class, “Ready, Spaghetti, Cook!” is run by Jay, a professional chef and support worker, and is intended to not only teach participants how to cook but has been designed to increase their social skills. Recipes are simple and easy-to-learn, and each participant will be provided a copy so they can try making them at home as well. Through communicating and collaborating with both Jay and their fellow participants, each participant will build foundational skills for interacting in and with the wider community. Participants will also see improvements within:

  • Teamwork skills
  • Social interaction and relationships
  • Self-regulation
  • Sensory integration
  • Life skills
