Adult Day Programs

Rehabilitation, through therapy and positive relationship building, allows those with developmental disabilities to develop life skills and become more independent.

Upstate Cerebral Palsy operates seven sites featuring supportive day habilitation programs for those with differing abilities. 

The large habilitation sites, located in Boonville, Sauquoit, Barneveld and Utica offer in-depth services by behavioral specialists, physical and occupational therapists, and speech pathologists. These sites host up to 60 individuals with a variety of challenges, each on specific schedules to improve their skills and quality of life. Individuals may plant flowers in the greenhouse, stretch and work out with therapists, or enhance their mental skills by playing with the interactive Nintendo Wii.

Our day programs based out of Lowville, Chadwicks and Morrisville are community-based and provide individuals the opportunity to interact in public settings, enhancing their social skills and building confidence. Up to 20 individuals at each site learn to function on their own and/or in group situations, as they react to social settings, helping develop their personal well-being.

The day habilitation programs at Upstate Cerebral Palsy provide opportunities to help people learn skills that will enable them to participate as active, vital members of the community. The activities are individualized and focus on community service and volunteerism. Examples of these activities include:  making a purchase at a store, volunteering for a local hospital or church, borrowing a book at the library, or participating in meaningful, entertaining activities at the day program site.

Upstate Cerebral Palsy provides transportation to each day habilitation site.
