Adult Developmental Program

Adult Development Program (ADP)

The Adult Development Program (ADP) is a licensed adult day program for individuals with moderate to profound developmental disabilities located in Lafayette, CA. ADP focuses on teaching and coaching individuals in the areas of activities of daily living, self-advocacy, and community integration. ADP also specializes in providing necessary supports for people with behavioral concerns and physical conditions. Such supports include teaching replacement behaviors for behaviors that interfere with the individual’s success, assistance with personal hygiene, feeding, toileting, and toileting hygiene, improving communication skills, and other necessary supports. Skills are taught both on-site in actual and simulated settings, and individuals are provided ample opportunities for practicing newly-learned skills in real-life community settings.

Population(s) Served

Las Trampas provides residential facilities that are licensed through the California Department of Social Services-Community Care Licensing Division. These residential facilities offer a home to individuals with 24-hour staff support. Currently, Las Trampas operates two specialized residential homes in Contra Costa County – both of which are designed to support individuals with behavioral concerns. The emphasis is to provide necessary supports to maintain community placement in a home setting. Such supports and training include, but are not limited to: Self-advocacy, community integration, activities of daily living, behavioral support and teaching socially appropriate replacement skills, and medical services coordinated by board certified registered nurses.

As one of the original pilot programs funded through Community Supported Living Arrangements, Las Trampas has provided Supported Living Services since 1990. Each individual has a personal Facilitator who works with the individual and staff to ensure that the five core beliefs--a home of one’s own, choice and self-direction, developing relationships, community membership and participation, and flexible and tailored services--are supported to ensure the individual’s success in community living. One of the most important aspects of the program is helping individuals to develop a circle of support consisting of friends, relatives, neighbors, community members, and others to help them to reach their personal goals and ensure personal choices are respected.

Adults

The emphasis in this program is to provide necessary training to increase independent living skills with the goal of decreasing reliance on structured supports. Rather than completing tasks for individuals, they are provided with the tools and training to complete these tasks and responsibilities independently. Core training areas include, but are not limited to: money management; cooking, meal preparation and menu planning; nutrition; grocery and personal training; personal health, including accessing medical services and medication management; mobility and transportation training; self-advocacy; household management and cleaning; accessing community resources; developing independent social recreation opportunities; and other training as required to increase independent living skills.

How we listen

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Seeking feedback from people served makes programs more responsive and effective. Here’s how this organization is listening.

done We shared information about our current feedback practices.
  • Who are the people you serve with your mission?

    Adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities, their families, and those supporting them. The direct program participants are those with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

  • How is your organization collecting feedback from the people you serve?

  • What significant change resulted from feedback?

    Las Trampas has utilized information received from surveys to determine the types of services and service modalities to be used during the COVID-19 pandemic as well as to determine the plan for resumption of in-person services. Surveys have also been utilized to determine individual needs and comfortability in returning to in-person services. Changes have been made to our resumption of day program services plan to include 2 full days of service per week rather than 4 days of half-day services. Individuals rotate the days of service as not to exceed reduced-capacity limits.

  • With whom is the organization sharing feedback?

    The people we serve, Our staff, Our board, Our community partners,

  • How has asking for feedback from the people you serve changed your relationship?

    As the organization transitions to the utilization of person-centered thinking and planning, feedback in the individual service plan and person-centered planning process is resulting in a natural transition of power to the individual served. This is also resulting in a change in program implementation as program is more customized to the individual.

  • What challenges does the organization face when collecting feedback?

    It is difficult to get the people we serve to respond to requests for feedback, We don’t have the right technology to collect and aggregate feedback efficiently, It is difficult to get honest feedback from the people we serve, Questionnaires are difficult for persons with severe or profound intellectual disabilities. ,
