Coming up this December, and FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER, we’re opening the Liberty Cafe at Discovery Middle School. This pop-up style cafe offers a chance for students to practice job skills (serving Roasterie coffee) and get therapy at the same time.
Students move out of their wheelchairs and are situated in the upright portable harness system. This allows them to interact with “customers” at eye-level and experience the world from a different perspective. Our therapists point out it also is beneficial in strengthen muscle groups and for circulation.
Building strength, skills, and confidence! Variety KC’s sponsors and generous supporters have made this possible for the first time ever, in any school!
