Empowering People with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities to Lead Fuller Lives

Activity of the Month

The Glenwood residents have started participating in Karaoke Wednesdays at their residence, having fun singing karaoke and dancing every week with their peers and staff. This culminated in a big Karaoke Showcase at the Glenwood Holiday Party. The individuals showed off the skills they’d been working on to their friends, family, staff, and other guests. They used a karaoke machine, and it was an activity that everyone looked forward to each week. The day after karaoke night, the individuals happily shared the evening’s events with the staff that weren’t there. There was always a little anecdote included about who sang what song, or which individual danced along even though they didn’t want to sing. And at the holiday party, almost everyone wanted to sing a song, having gained the confidence to sing in front of a big group through all the weeks beforehand. Karaoke Wednesdays is a residential activity that the individuals love and has quickly become a permanent part of their routine.
