Meet Me At The Mountain and Therapeutic Adventures – Educate, Challenge and Inspire JMU-Occupational Therapy students.
On April 1, 2010 Mark Andrews spoke to a class of occupational therapy students at James Madison University in Harrisonburg, VA.
For the first part of the class, he spoke about the Adaptive Outdoor Programs (adaptive skiing and snowboarding, adaptive sailing, adaptive kayaking and canoeing, adaptive fly fishing, adaptive camping and backpacking, as well as adaptive climbing) that are a function of the services provided by Therapeutic Adventures, Inc. “The students were very inquisitive and had very good questions.”
The second half of the class Mark shared Meet Me At The Mountain -his new Interactive Multi-Sensory Adventure. After explaining the purpose of the MMATM-Education Project, Mark told the students about the process he went through to write and produce this unique children’s book and DVD, which is now available in six formats:
Illustrated Print | Sign Language | Braille/traditional format | Print/Braille Version | Music/The Story is sung by the Troublesome Creek String Band | Recording for Blind & Dyslexic (RFB&D) – National Library (members only)
“The students were very enthusiastic and engaged in the presentation. I am very pleased with the favorable response I received after sharing the MMATM Illustrated Book and Interactive DVD. The clapping, the cheers, and the wonderful questions were an affirmation of support.”
