Richard actively engages in his construction module at DRC.

Richard displays focus when completing the models he works on, which in turn he is using fine motor skills, problem-solving, and memory retention. Additionally, it also serves as a form of stress relief, allowing him the ability to unwind and relax.

Well done, Richard, keep up the good work.
