Adaptations

Adaptations Lehigh Valley is an exciting social group program for adults in their 20s and 30s with developmental and/or learning disabilities, who have a high level of independence. Our program is a place for individuals of all backgrounds to socialize, learn, grow, and build friendships with one another. This program provides participants with opportunities to experience the community through various social and recreational activities. 

Adaptations Lehigh Valley usually meets twice a month. The first Thursday of each month meetings are held at LVCIL and there is pizza and games. There is typically a second event later on in month where the group does something fun in the community (based on the participants' interests).

For more information, please contact Amanda Thomas, M.S. Ed, Adaptations Program Director at adaptationslv@gmail.com

Independent Living Skills Groups

These group educational sessions are held periodically to provide consumers with education on the skills needed to live independently. Topics include finding community resources, accessing transportation, emergency/personal safety, health skills, money management, maintaining your home, and simple meal preparation. IL skills groups are perfect for consumers that are interested in living independently or would like to brush up on their skills.

To register to attend, or for more information, please check our community calendar or contact a Community Support Coordinator.

Peer Support Group

LVCIL also offers a peer support group for people with disabilities.

The group can offer social, emotional, and practical support to members living with disabilities. Peer support group meets every other Monday.
