Mya’s Teaching Moments
Serving in Utah and Salt Lake Counties
Private Respite Care – “supporting social skills in everyday activities while providing a safe and accepting environment.” Every moment can be a teaching opportunity. My goal is to provide your loved one with life skills while providing you with the peace of mind that they are in an experienced, safe and accepting environment. I provide guidance and support in social interactions while giving real-world experience in grocery shopping, meal preparation doing laundry, leveraging technology (including the internet), and daily exercise. I would like to invite your loved one into my home to work on these essential skills as they interact with my family, extended 4 legged family, and in the community.
Special Ability Dream Team
The Special Ability Dream Team is a support group for the parents of special needs children. Our goal is to provide an awareness of the opportunities which are currently available for our “specially-abled” children, and to create the opportunities that are yet to be dreamed. We believe, that if given the chance, these special kids will be able to live their dreams, and fulfill their highest potential. We believe that we can empower our children by actively seeking opportunities for: employment, social interaction, increased independence and even housing opportunities. We welcome parents of special needs children to join us, and together we can make our kids dreams come true!
Stephanie Brucker is in charge of a performing arts group for people with disabilities. For more information she can be reached via email or at 801-492-9114.
