Adult Day Programs

 

Programs for Adults with Developmental Disabilities

Adult day programs teach skills including mobility training, verbal and non-verbal communication, self-help skills and community integration to adults with developmental disabilities.  The adult day program at UCP, known as the Adult Growth Experience Program, or AGE, gives developmentally disabled adults the chance to increase their independent living skills.

Who Qualifies for UCP’s Adult Growth Experience Program?
UCP’s Adult Growth Experience (AGE) program works with adults with significant cognitive disabilities due to conditions including autism, epilepsy, intellectual disability, Down syndrome or cerebral palsy. In addition, individuals with physical and/or behavioral challenges can also benefit. Adults participating in UCP’s Adult Growth Experience program learn daily living skills, verbal and non-verbal communication and community integration and awareness.

Via UCP’s Transportation program, clients of AGE engage in Community Based Instruction (CBIs). These outings:

  • Build a sense of connection to their community
  • Gain real world learning experience
  • Develop specific skills to be able to function independently within the community
  • Increase positive community awareness
  • Encourage respect, tolerance and understanding among different groups

Benefits of UCP’s Adult Grown Experience Program:
By serving adults with cerebral palsy and other developmental disabilities, UCP’s Adult day program focuses on building independent living skills through integrated community experiences. Activities include basic instruction in computer skills, practical math and reading, mobility training and functional living skills.

UCP Adult Day Program Clients Gain Independence through MOVE

Mobility Opportunities Via Education (MOVE)
Many of UCP adult clients experience physical limitations that affect their ability to walk upright.  For those clients participating in UCP’s Adult Day Program, they have access to  MOVE program. The MOVE program utilizes equipment like the Rifton Pacer Gait Trainer to learn self-help skills, increase their ability to communicate and improve their range of motion. Each day during the week, clients, with the help of specialized equipment and guided instruction, can enjoy assisted mobility for up to an hour a day, five days a week. The Pacer can adjust to fit clients of all ages and adapt to their individual strength levels, providing various levels of support.  Read about Cetarra’s success with the MOVE program
