Adult Day Program
As those with autism graduate from school or are nearing 21, they and their parents will face the dreaded uncertainty of the "cliff." The moment when they will age out of the special education services and benefits provided by the IDEA act. The moment when the availability of therapeutic programs for young adults on the spectrum dramatically diminishes. Moreover, the programs that are available often have short hours and do not provide the services and coverage working parents need.
Our adult day program addresses that urgent need.
From 8 AM to 5 PM, our adult program provides a place for those transitioning out of school and into adulthood to continue to receive the support and services they need. We will help your young adult work towards gaining increased independence by building self-care, employment, social, communication, and behavioral skills.

Our full-day program offers engagement with the community and beyond through volunteer programs and by developing and creating products to sell online.
Our Adult Program Center
The program is located at 1902 Fairfax Ave., in Cherry Hill, NJ. The center features six different work stations, fitness equipment, as well as, kitchen and laundry appliances.
The center is designed teach life skills in a natural environment where the skills being taught relate directly to the environment the person is going to use them.
Since most people with autism gain the most from clear, hands-on instruction in life skills, our center is staffed by a BCBA and RBT that will perform an individual behavior and task analysis.
