Learning to prepare simple meals can improve independence and nutrition. Acquiring cooking skills may have an increased enjoyment and may save money. Academically, learning to cook may promote maths and reading proficiencies required for employment. For participants with physical disabilities, learning cooking skills may double as physical therapy while promoting kitchen accessibility. Cooking classes can incorporate cross-cultural tolerance by exploring foods from other countries and cultures, and nutrition education promotes healthy eating. Finally, exposure to new textures smells, and tastes may decrease selective eating in individuals with abnormal sensory processing. For these reasons, teaching cooking skills can be valuable to both adults and children with disabilities who are transitioning into independent living. Read more Information for NDIS participants
