An important skill for students to learn as they prepare for adulthood is being able to put away clean clothes. It is not enough for a student to understand how to put clothes in a washer and dryer; part of doing laundry, maintaining an organized living environment, and wearing clothing that presents well in public is having a way to neatly store clean clothing. Students with vision impairments may require specific instruction in order to understand how to fold or hang clothes neatly. In order for students to be able to use this skill, they must have opportunities for hands-on practice. In the following activity, students can practice hanging clothing to build independent living skills, organizational skills, and manual dexterity. This is also an opportunity for students to build skills that can be used in entry-level retail employment positions.
