We welcome adults with physical and/or cognitive disabilities who have completed their public school education, but have not found job placement or volunteer opportunities that work for them. We empower and challenge them to recognize and use their abilities, concentrating on their strengths instead of their weaknesses. We adapt material, simplify steps, and give encouragement needed to learn new skills to compliment with those abilities.
Our participant’s disabilities include but are not limited to: Down Syndrome, Cerebral Palsy, Autism, Fragile X and various cognitive delays; ranging in age beginning 18 and up.
Coventry currently offers two, five-month sessions per year in the spring and fall.
Our program operates Monday-Thursday 9:00am-3:00pm. We have a highly educated and trained staff that directs the program with the assistance of community volunteers. Coventry has carefully and consistently added new participants each session for positive and manageable growth allowing our instructor/volunteer to participant ratio to remain 3 to 1.
