THE ADULT TRAINING PROGRAM serves approximately 170 individuals with disabilities. With the 2014 opening of the Adult Training Annex located at 1800 Kutztown Road, the program has expanded to meet the need of the community. With this expansion, we are able to serve approximately 240 individuals. Various opportunities based on the desires and abilities of each individual are provided. Social and recreational activities, some paid work, volunteer experiences, communication and physical therapy are among the experiences offered. There are twelve individual components as well as other areas, which include a kitchen/apartment, classrooms, small and large activity areas, changing rooms, first aid room and the Event Room.
Program participants enjoy many community activities, such as Reading Phillies, Cabela’s, Longwood Gardens, Oley Turnpike Dairy, Blue Marsh, Leesport Auction, Hawk Mountain, and many more. Participants have the opportunity to enjoy daily small group activities, such as jewelry making, bingo, dance lessons, sports, etc. Large assemblies are also planned which include holiday parties, entertainment, dances, fashion shows, etc.
In addition to enjoying community activities, many program participants also enjoy community volunteering. Volunteer sites include Wood-To-Wonderful, Humane Society, and Meals-On-Wheels.
The Department of Human Services and the PA Department of Aging license this program.
