Summary Upcycling Sheltered Workshops assesses prevailing practices in community-based facilities for people with developmental disabilities and argues that it is time for a fundamental change in the way these programs are run. Susan Dlouhy and Patty Mitchell offer a revolutionary alternative, the Creative Abundance Model, and outline both its principles and its application. The new model turns sheltered workshops away from routine to creativity, and from staff-directed activities to participant-directed activities. The Creative Abundance Model seeks to do away with the busywork or repetitive tasks.
