    #81: Game Changing

    Changing games and activities to meet the needs of our client groups is an important skill to acquire. In some cases, it's about the physical surroundings and the physical materials within our control. In other cases, it's about the language we use and the level of challenge we can present. Join Michelle and Chris for a thought-provoking discussion about changing things up. 

    We hope you join us!
