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.

Community Inclusion & Day Habilitation

As an approved provider for the Division on Developmental Disabilities (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 the safest way possible. We focus on the possibilities NOT limitations. Join us today.

For Our Participants

Using a team approach to promote success, each individual has a service plan that outlines the person’s goals and objectives on which they work with staff daily. The individual’s quality of life is enhanced through socialization with their peers and staff, the opportunity to develop friendships and take part in recreational activities, learn new skills, and participate in a variety of community activities.

Services are customized based on the participant’s:

  • Personal interests and desires
  • Level of ability
  • Goals for growth and independence
  • Level of personal care needs

Services Focus on Encouraging, Supporting and Helping Participants to:

  • Obtain or enhance social and communication skills
  • Maximize and maintain functional life skills and self-care
  • Access opportunities for meaningful recreation

  • Learn to self-advocate
