At the Bradenton ADT we believe in individuality, in learning through doing, and having some fun while we are doing it. Our participants have the options of joining a variety of programs throughout the day. Loveland Bradenton provides a broad range of innovative and effective programs and services aimed at developing independence, peer to peer relationships and being part of their community. Loveland services a wide range of disabilities, among them are Autism Spectrum Disorder, Cerebral Palsy, Spina Bifida, Prader-Willi Syndrome and Down Syndrome to name a few.
How does it work?
Each week staff provides a calendar of activities. A few of the activities are computer access, arts and crafts, drumming, cooking and nutrition, gardening, and numerous other recreational, community and outdoor activities. Loveland also focuses on building critical life skills (home care, shopping, budgets and going out to lunch or dinner). Also important are skills that grow new friendships with peers.
A monthly calendar is sent out with a daily list of activities that will happen during their time at Loveland.
Activities are led by staff with the whole group participating.
To list a few activities;
Monday has a focus on Art,
Tuesday’s focus is “All about you”,
Wednesday is music with Ken ( a group favorite),
Thursday is Tai-Chi with Ms. Tiny
Friday is a day of fun with Monique.
