Adult Day Training Programs & Community Inclusion

Son with Disabilities and Dad "Our son used to just sit on the sidelines of activities, but now he participates. He is talking more because the Easterseals staff has taken the time to understand his style of communication. Easterseals has lifted up my life and has been great for our family."

Providing Real Opportunities for Independence

At Easterseals New Jersey, our services for adults with developmental and physical disabilities are designed to provide options that maximize independence for the entire family. Our services are based on the participant’s interests and desires as well as the needs of the family/caregiver.

Virtual Programming Info

New Jersey State SealDue to the second rise in COVID-19 cases across the state, the Division of Developmental Disabilities (DDD) announced Thursday January 7th that it has decided to extend its mandate that  ALL congregate day habilitation programs stop in-person programming from November 26, 2020, until FURTHER NOTICE. We do not have an established date for re-opening currently. We will notify you when Easterseals is allowed to resume in-person Day Habilitation services.

Community Inclusion

As an approved provider for DDD services, meaningful community integration for people of all ability levels is at the core of our mission. We believe everyone deserves an opportunity to engage fully in their community as a contributing member of their locality. This means we prioritize community-based socialization, learning, volunteerism, and recreation in small group sizes (limited 6) and in the safest way possible. We focus on the possibilities of what can be done, not what they can’t. Join us today.
