The SALSA (Special Adults Life Skills Academy) Program provides evidence-based, independent living skills training for adults with developmental disabilities ages 18+ who have completed high school. This program will build on each participant’s individualized strengths to develop communication, social, culinary & fitness skills while working towards independent skill performance.
The classes are designed to increase:
- knowledge and skills related to nutrition and cooking
- independence in meal preparation
- willingness to try new foods
The SALSA program is an 8-week session, with classes held twice a week for two hours. Participants in the program will be divided into two groups, to suit their individualized support needs. Each group participates in a 45-minute cooking activity, 45-minute fitness lesson, with 30 minutes left to enjoy a meal together as a whole group and complete a reflection activity related to each lesson’s learning objectives.
