A.D.A.P.T.: (Assistive technology, Developmental activities, Augmentative communication, Person-centered planning, Therapeutic intervention). Specialized services for individuals with complex physical challenges and medical needs, including various A.D.A.P.T. Program. The primary goal of the program is to provide each individual with the support and training they need to live more independently and to gain increasing control over their environment. Daily activities provide sensory stimulation, therapeutic positioning and range of motion exercise to improve physical strength and flexibility for improved functional use. To integrate individuals into the communities where they live, we coordinate special trips to places like the movies, mall, boardwalk, casino, zoo, and aquarium. Individuals also participate in a variety of local fundraising activities, selling arts and craft items to purchase a carbon monoxide detector to donate to a local fire department, holding a dance to benefit the Martin Luther King Foundation, and collecting goods and soda can tabs for the Ronald McDonald House of South Jersey.
