SUMMARY OF ACTIVITIES:
SPARC is providing life-long learning opportunities for adults with life-long disAbilities. Our club members talk and we listen. SPARC participants, through our innovative adaptations and direct hand-over-hand support, are developing new skills in areas that interest them most.
- SPARC is a unique clubhouse model designed with the adaptations to support adults 22-55 with physical or developmental disAbilities. Few options exist in our community after high school graduation for young adults with multiple disabilities. SPARC facilitates continued life skill development in a community center setting.We want to change the blueprint of day support.Rather than these adults being isolated at home with caregivers or placed in unsuitable settings such as institutions, or nursing homes at 23, SPARC club members are thriving in their neighborhood community!
- SPARC has a wide range of activities offered: literacy activities (bookclub), continued life skills development (cooking, computer skills), pursuit of leisure interests (adapted sports), socialization, keeping families united through respite, and our entrepreneurial projects.
- SPARC is effective and innovative in its service delivery approach by providing access to activities through technology or other augmentative devices. i.e., adapted cooking, computer lab, assistive communication devices, switch activated equipment.
- SPARC currently has a waiting list.
