The Cerebral Palsy Center serves adults with Cerebral Palsy and other developmental disabilities. Licensed as an Adult Learning Program and accredited by CARF, the Center provides a learning environment where people can enhance their capacity for independent living. Employing a person-centered model that encourages self-determination and individual choice, programs are designed to increase the involvement of participants in their communities, expand work skills, improve overall health and wellness, and promote self-advocacy and self-sufficiency. Participants attend school, including college, create and run their own businesses, receive awards for their community-advocacy efforts, and learn to use computers with the support of assistive technology. Classes are organized into five program areas: Micro-Enterprise Self-Employment Training; Independent Living Skills; Vocational Opportunity; Assistive Technology & Academic Skills; and Health and Wellness.
