ADULT DAY TRAINING
Adult Day Training (ADT) is a life skills development program that concentrates on strengthening and improving daily living, communication, and social skills to enhance decision-making, independence, and self-advocacy. ADT programs are person-centered, meaning that participants navigate ways to hone and develop various essential life skills based on their individual short and long-term goals to help them live their lives as independently as possible.
For example, over the course of one week, a group of participants may plan to cook and prepare a meal by Friday. However, all week long, participants are navigating a number of daily living, social and communication skills to get to the meal.
Additionally, Loveland’s ADT programs emphasize a community integration model to educate and advocate for people with disabilities. These community outings involve both an exploration of our community at-large, including trips to local libraries, grocery stores, county parks, restaurants, beaches, recycling centers, and more, as well as partnerships with local community nonprofits to volunteer or expand educational opportunities.
Current community collaborations include:
Loveland works to break down everyday tasks to reinforce the building blocks of independence, helping individuals grow their confidence and continue to strive for new heights in their personal goals.
