ALA COSTA CENTERS
Society as a whole is improved and will more
Fully appreciate the intrinsic value of its entire people.
After school program/Day Camp
Ala Costa Centers’ after-school program
offers school aged children with developmental disabilities
academic support, enrichment activities, and help developing the skills and
self-esteem that this underserved population needs for success in life. Families
rely on Ala Costa to provide services that enable children with developmental
disabilities to learn so that when they are in classroom or on their own, they
have the skills needed to absorb and process information. The program
curriculum targets independent living skills, mobility skill training, fine art,
expressive/receptive language skills, and social skills.
Adult Transition Program
Ala Costa's Adult Transition [ACAT] program serves students ages 1822 with developmental disabilities from the Berkeley Unified School
District and North Region SELPA. ACAT is a person-centered,
community based program which focuses on self-determination skills,
vocational skills, and community integration.
Adult Community Training Program
The Adult Community Training
Program was created to serve Ala Costa graduates aged 22+ and other adults with
developmental disabilities. Once students graduate from the Ala Costa after-school
program at age 22 their venue for socialization and activity comes to a halt. Most of the
time individuals remain at home for the duration of their day with no one to challenge
them or socialize with. A.C.T. focuses on engaging participants in activities ranging from
attending college, employment, volunteering, internships, and exercise programs at local
gyms. Ala Costa takes the interests of the individuals in order to research opportunities in
the community that fit both with their skill level and appeal. These activities create a sense of
self-confidence, worth, and community involvement that is crucial to the spiritual and physical
health of an adult with a developmental disability.
