Children who are multiply disabled need many things – not the least of which is a time each day to socialize with peers and enjoy appropriate, supervised recreation. The parents and guardians of these children also need the peace of mind that comes with knowing, that while they are unable to be present, a dedicated staff of skilled adults is ensuring the safety of their family member.
The young people in the Living Resources After School Program are able to enjoy a variety of activities, and they find the capacity to socialize with their peers a vital part of their day.
Trips to the library, or local museums, the time and space to create art, a game of one-on-one basketball, music therapy, yoga, and cooking or baking are just as important to these individuals as they are to anyone else their age.
Currently there are five After School Programs throughout the Capital District to meet the needs of students from age five to twenty-one. In four of our programs, sessions are held at schools and follow the host school’s calendar; running from 2-6pm Mondays through Fridays. Transportation to program is provided by the student’s home school district, while families are responsible for picking up their children by 6 pm.
The fifth program is totally community-based. It is a without-walls program which serves students in Saratoga County.
These students are challenged by many disabilities, both mental and physical. However, there are few limitations here as a safe and caring setting combine to give each of our students a comfortable place in today’s world.
