UCP’s Adult Day Program gives developmentally disabled adults the chance to increase their independent living skills and reduce their feelings of isolation. Adults who participate in UCP adult day program work on daily living skills, verbal and non-verbal communication, person centered planning and becoming valued members of their community.
Activities include basic instruction in computer skills, practical math and reading, functional living skills and self-advocacy. Through UCP’s Transportation program, individuals have an opportunity to engage with their community through outings, helping them practice their new skills in a variety of settings.
