L.I.F.E. Adult Day Academy (L.A.D.A.) opened June 1, 2010. L.A.D.A. is unique in its emphasis on academic, social, and creative skill development without relying on large group simulated work activities. L.A.D.A. utilizes a multi-modality approach, incorporating the creative arts as a means to improve socialization, communication, visual processing, hand-eye and large and small motor coordination, academic and life skills. Our academic and life skills are taught in a safe and respectful environment.
We have extensive core curriculum and emphasis on the creative arts. L.A.D.A. is a Medicaid waiver provider and we also accept private pay. We have an accessible building and grounds with a low student/instructor ratio of 4:1. We accept full time and part time students and we have very flexible scheduling.
Feel free to come on out and tour our facility anytime during business hours (9-4). Come join the fun!
