Starting from Scratch Key Ingredients for Independence

Starting from Scratch empowers adults with intellectual developmental disabilities (IDD) to learn vital skills that immediately transfer to daily life - in the comfortable and familiar environment of the kitchen.

Students develop cooking abilities and practice social interactions; making, sharing and eating food together. Skills focus on safety, hygiene, communication, self-leadership, decision making and planning/execution - daily living skills that apply to situations at home or in the workplace.

The Starting from Scratch program provides an inclusive opportunity to experience joy, friendships and meaningful relationships. Students gain access to a community where unique talents and capabilities are

valued and celebrated. Confidence builds and they feel purpose and meaning through day-to-day accomplishments - promoting a feeling of competence and minimizing fear and anxiety.

As capabilities increase, possibilities open up for participants to realize new potential as thriving and contributing members of the Colorado community and to live their best possible lives.
