The Coleridge Adult Day Program supports adults age 21 and over (including seniors) with developmental disabilities to continue building the academic and relevant life skills needed to be as independent as possible.
Through skill development plans custom-tailored to the needs and goals of each individual, adults are developing life skills like meal preparation, communication, using public transportation and navigating the community, grocery shopping, and more. Participants are empowered to make their own decisions about daily activities, and self-direction is emphasized. Arts and crafts, music, and theater are also available, ensuring that the learning needs of participants of all learning styles and skill levels are addressed.
In the Coleridge Adult Day Program, participants are empowered to the extent possible to make decisions regarding their skill development plan and daily activities. Like all of our programs, the Coleridge Adult Day Program provides bilingual (English and Spanish) services to both participants and guardians to meet the diverse needs of those we serve. Participants work in small groups to ensure a high level of individualized skill-building, and regular outings mean that participants have opportunities to practice their skills in the community.
The curriculum in the Coleridge Adult Day Program curriculum ensures that participants can continue to make consistent progress on goals, regardless of their current skill level. The curriculum is divided into three levels, with each level contains six progressively challenging skill steps. Participants work towards achieving the majority of the skills delineated in each step before graduating to the next skill level.
