Schott Adult Day Program
The Schott Adult Day Program is a daily enrichment program for adults with special needs
  • The Program is open to individuals 18 years of age and over with a documented disability
  • The class size is limited to 10 students per instructor.
  • The curriculum include life skills, community participation and physical wellness
  • The students enjoy field trips, art classes, craft classes, physical fitness activities, gardening and cooking just to name a few.

“There are too many young adults aging out of the school system with no meaningful place to go.”  Mary Roukas, Director of Residences and ADTP, and mother of a young adult with special needs.

The Schott Adult Day Program was born out of the need of desperate parents looking for superior services for their adult children with disabilities.
 
Through many hours of collaboration with parents, students and educators, Schott has designed a program to be specifically oriented towards meeting the needs of this very special population.  In addition, the success of the Saturday pilot program gave staff a great amount of insight into the requirements for a five-day-a-week program.

With a 25 year history of providing programs and services for the deaf and disabled, Schott Communities is uniquely qualified to offer a program in an atmosphere of dignity, respect, friendship and caring.

“We are very excited about this opportunity to have our daughter participate in such an active and inclusive program at a place that she loves.”  –  Laurie Horner
 
“Why would I send my son anywhere else when he could come to Schott where everyone is treated with such dignity and everyone is so nice and caring?” – Nalini Bethel
 
The Program is under the supervision of licensed Special Education instructors.

The Program runs Monday through Friday from 8:30 to 2:30PM

The mission of the Schott Adult Day Program is to enhance the educational, social and physical well-being of individuals with special needs by providing an enriching weekday program in an atmosphere of dignity, respect, friendship and caring.

Everyone, regardless of ability, has a need for security, belonging, respect and success on a personal level. The Schott Adult Day Program offers individuals with disabilities experiences that allow them to meet these needs.  The curriculum of the Program includes instruction in life skills and social skills as well as enrichment activities which are fulfilling and which promote total well-being.  The individuals who present the Program embody the values of Schott Communities and create an atmosphere where the participants feel welcome, safe, respected and encouraged.
