Fun Activities For Adults With Learning Disabilities – At Surrey Docs Farm, we offer a range of accredited training programs for adult students with learning disabilities.
The sessions are led by participants and the students are offered a wide selection in horticulture, animal husbandry, cooking, retail and farm management. Students develop practical skills and knowledge as part of a social team, engaging with the wider farming community and visitors.

Students work as a team to grow a variety of fruits and vegetables that are harvested and sold through our farm shop. Students get horticulture, retail, customer service and life skills. The scheme runs on Thursdays and Fridays.
The students are responsible for daily animal care routines, and work with our wide range of farm animals from rabbits to sheep to donkeys. One of the popular activities is taking our donkeys for a walk along the Thames Path. This project will take place on Monday.
Students tend their own vegetable plots – choosing what to grow, planting seeds, caring for young plants and harvesting vegetables to take home. This project has been running on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays at the Farm for over 25 years!
Students develop a range of cooking skills – processing and making jam, baking bread or making pasta – using ingredients harvested from the farm where possible. The pupils also learn village crafts such as felting wool from our own sheep. Farm produce takes place on Wednesdays and Thursdays.

This is very important to us here at Stephens Place and we strive to support our residents with intellectual and developmental disabilities by offering a wide range of arts, crafts and other activities. Some of our craft programs include jewelry making, group poster coloring, papier mache, pine bird feeder making and amazing DIY crafts. Here are 16 of our favorite crafts for adults with developmental disabilities:
Stress balls stimulate the sense of touch, which helps relieve stress. It is hugely beneficial for adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities who suffer from high levels of anxiety. Having a stress ball can help improve dexterity and strengthen hand and forearm muscles. It can also be used to help people experience greater peace for all.
Making bird feeders is a bit of a double whammy – you have the activity and so much fun to watch as well
