Does anyone have a particular site that they get the news from. Most news is negative or very political that I would not want to use with our participants. It does look like USA today newspapers online looks pretty good. Any other ideas would be great.

Does she know Braille. Hadley Institute for the Blind offers free books on tape and the teaching instructions to teach Braille. You don't have to know Braille to teach it, and they are very supportive. You can look them up online. They are in IL.

Does anyone have ideas of what to do when your residents/participants only know one language, such as french, spanish, arabic? I am going to get some books at the library with both english and the foreign languages translation.

Another idea would be a wheelchair workout by Amanda Cook. I used one from the library that was from 2009, and it was really good. You also could try the Sit and Be Fit ones that are done by a Mary Ann Wilson.

I use a dvd by Tracie Long, "Low impact for all fitness levels" from 2015. It is good. There are some parts where it shows the leaders on the dvd out of their chair, but I just tell our participants to stay in the chair. You can also you walking dvd's such as Leslie Sansone, and just have them stay in the chair. They can do the arm movements and just march while sitting, kick, etc.
