The Arc of San Diego's Day Training Programs provide support with essential life skills and combine classroom instruction with community integration and vocational development.
Together with your family and the San Diego Regional Center social worker, our staff helps you develop goals and objectives that lead to a better future. We pay special attention to your personal needs and preferences.
Every week a schedule, structured around your interests and objectives, is prepared. We stress self-advocacy and communication in order to maximize independence. Adaptive technology is also used to facilitate daily learning; in addition, you may benefit from the services of speech therapists and behavior specialists.
Emphasis is placed on putting the knowledge acquired in the classrom to practical use. Curriculum focused on communication, safety, money management, personal and social concerns, and life skills. Specialty courses are available in art, American Sign Language, behavioral management, bilingual instruction, computers, cooking, geriatrics, and self-advocacy. All teaching materials are chronologically age-appropriate.
The Arc provides instruction and support to enable you to participate in the community more independently. We offer transition training from the classroom to a broader, more natural environment. Day Training Services also offer volunteer and paid work experience in fully integrated community environments.
Vocational Development is an opportunity to learn a variety of skills that will prepare you for the type of work you want. You gain valuable experience working on a variety of light industrial contracts, janitorial, grounds maintenance, and recycling jobs.
