Our Adult Skill Development & Leisure program is the only one of its kind in the area that provides recreational opportunities to over 100 adults in Middlesex County and the Greater Hartford area. Programs are offered year-round, Tuesdays through Saturdays at various times.
Our program publication, The Leisure Link, is produced on a quarterly basis and offers a wide range of leisure opportunities promoting skill development, wellness, independence, friendships and fun.
Programs not only address the needs and interests on an individual basis, but also according to similar interests, ages (21+) and skill levels. Feedback is solicited from participants to develop future programming, fostering decision making as well as ownership of the program.
In the midst of all the fun there’s always an opportunity to teach and promote health and wellness, good communication skills, safety, and self-reliance. They give opportunities for more individualized guidance, support, and skill development.
Small groups offer successful integration in the community, resulting in acceptance by people without disabilities. We encourage socialization not only within our leisure programs, but also with members of their community. Continued experiences ensure that friendships, community, and social networks are created and sustain themselves outside of the program.
