Focused on basic life skills of residential proficiency, Duvall Homes provides a comprehensive Life Skills Program as part of its Adult Day Training (ADT). Taking place in its Opportunities Enrichment Center in Glenwood, Florida, our ADT programming was developed to help individuals with developmental disabilities learn self-sufficiency and to be as independent as potentially possible. Adult Day Training services stress training in the activities of daily living, self advocacy, adaptive and social skills and are age and culturally appropriate.
Life skills are taught in a classroom setting that simulates a studio apartment equipped with standard appliances and utensils essential to independent living. Residents are supervised while learning basic meal selection, food preparation skills and domestic utility tasks. Goals are developed to promote increased independence through individual implementation plans.
The programming at Duvall Homes’ Adult Day Training incorporates personalized goal setting so that individuals can be as self-sufficient as possible in a number of areas that develop both recreational and vocational skills. As goals are met, new goals are put into place to build a progressive advancement path.

Residents and participants of Duvall Homes Adult Day Training are supervised by trained and certified professionals required by Florida’s Agency for Persons with Disabilities to maintain quarterly reports that monitor activities of daily living as well as educational, vocational, fitness and nutritional goals.
ADT participants take many outings each week throughout the County of Volusia to local restaurants, stores, springs, beaches, wildlife conservations (discover more on our DeLand Area resource page), as well as engage in numerous community service projects all year round, which can be seen throughout the Duvall Homes website and in our biannual newsletters.
All prospective Day Training participants are evaluated to determine how Duvall Homes can best meet his/her needs.
