Life skills training for adults with disabilities.
Learning is a lifelong endeavor. Recognizing this, PAI offers a variety of classes to help adults with disabilities brush up on daily skills, such as cooking, technology, communication, and writing. We also focus on health and movement, encouraging clients to be active throughout their day at PAI. People in our adult day training programs regularly engage in movement activities, ranging from bowling to using the Wii, dancing, exercise or yoga. Our Healthy Choices and Healthy Snacks class is especially popular.
To help stimulate the mind, PAI offers a variety of life skills training along with recreation and leisure-based classes, such as card making/stamping, scrapbooking, and other arts and craft activities. We also offer classes designed to increase confidence and social appropriateness, including: appropriate social interactions, anger management, and functional work-based social skills, such as how to ask for help or more supplies.
At PAI, we believe it is important for people with disabilities to be involved in activities that make sense for them. The activities and levels of support PAI offers are based on the needs, interests and desires of each individual in our programs. We offer a structured environment with access to specialized support for people who have intellectual and developmental disability (IDD), autism spectrum disorder, and traumatic brain injury.
Our goal is to help clients enjoy a full, well-rounded life. We offer classes to teach the skills people with disabilities need to be engaged in paid work. We also provide opportunities to develop personal interests, both in community and onsite by encouraging hobbies, like gardening and volunteering in the community. Other classes focus on life skills training, such as: social skills, self-help and daily living skills, self-advocacy, yoga, health and wellness, safety skills and problem solving. Assistive technology and adaptive equipment is used to help those in our day programs for people with disabilities participate as fully as possible in the activities that interest them most.
