Want to learn more about FOC’s new Adult Day Program? You’ve come to the right place!
FOC’s day habilitation program is located in the heart of Medford NJ, in a sunny 9,000 square foot building. With soaring ceilings, a spacious common area, a kitchen for cooking lessons, multiple classrooms, and 10 acres of sprawling outdoor space, the program will offer our individuals a dynamic environment filled with growth-oriented opportunities. Couple this physical space with our team’s passion and experience; and the Medford site is already on its way to becoming one of NJ’s most lively day habilitation programs.
A world of opportunity for our individuals
Upon enrollment, our team conducts person-centered assessments to learn about an individual’s interests, skills and future goals. Broadly speaking, Medford’s programming will be designed by BCBA’s and structured around the “Assessment of Functional Living Skills” approach to learning. The AFLS is an evidence based skills assessment tool and curriculum guide, created to assist individuals with developmental disabilities in learning and maintaining crucial skills of independence.
Some of areas our individuals will focus on are:
- Basic living/self-care skills – Such as practicing hygiene, cooking, laundry, and various other independent living skills.
- Community Participation – Ranging from trips to restaurants, museums, shopping and recreation/exercise. Outings like these emphasize the importance of exploration and help develop safety skills.
- Communication skills – Practiced with intention, encouraging interaction with peers at Day Program and with community members during outings and events.
- Prevocational skills – Providing learning experiences designed to prepare our individuals for paid employment and volunteer work opportunities.
