Adult Day Training

Stetson Music at Duvall Homes

Talent And Inspiration Return To Duvall Homes

April 26, 2018 – We are once again blessed with the musical talents of Instruments of Healing (IOH), the community group of students from Stetson University’s School of Music.

Iminspired I'm InspiredFormed last year by Guitar Performance major Lauren Baucum, IOH comes to Duvall’s Opportunities Enrichment Center to entertain, and engage with, participants in our Adult Day Training program once a month. They’re inspiring repertoire provides a nice balance to the work contracts, co-curricular activities and life-skills training ADT participants keep busy with throughout the week.

Instruments of HealingDuring their visits, the IOH student musicians encourage viewing guests to sing along or pick up an instrument to join in on the fun, and each month a growing number learn a few new skills related to properly holding and playing a particular instrument. Staff, residents and family members extend a heart-felt thank you to these young volunteer musicians for their talent, patience, compassion and goodwill. We are all better for it.

Night To Shine DeLand

A Team Effort

February 8, 2018 – Participants in Duvall’s Day Training Program assisted in putting together 200 special greeting cards for each VIP attending the Night To Shine (NTS) Prom at Stetson Baptist Church in DeLand tomorrow night.

Each unique recycled card reads the message, “You Are Shining Bright Tonight And Every Day!” The cards were decorated with a single sparkling star on the front symbolic of the Faith, Hope & Love this special night represents for each VIP with special needs in our community, and the care put into sealing each envelope by those in our care. The cards were stuffed into the black NTS gift bags for each VIP and will be given out Friday night.

  2. Paint the rock
  3. Hide the rock anywhere in DeLand

DeLand Rocks DuvallWith the assistance of our Support Specialists, participants in Duvall Homes’ Adult Day Training program created several one-of-a-kind painted rocks during the past few weeks. A few trips around town followed to hide these tiny masterpieces.

ADT participants learned about the Bald Eagles habitat, feeding and nesting behavior from statewide data taught by ADT instructors in our Opportunities Enrichment Center and from viewing a live Eagle cam.

Duvall Homes Eagle WatchThis program continued for weeks and included several field trips with binoculars to Lake Woodruff National Wildlife Refuge to discover and monitor the Bald Eagle’s habitat and hatching of eaglets. [ We’re quite fortunate to have our ADT facility, in Glenwood, be located only five minutes from Lake Woodruff. ]

Eagle Watch ArtParticipants also created eagle artworks following the trip providing an additional form of expression for each member of the special group of birdwatchers.

ADT Valentine’s Day Celebration

Duvall Homes Valentine’s Day Celebration – Group Home Residents and community participants of Duvall Homes’ Adult Day Training (ADT) in Glenwood, Florida, enjoyed an outdoor Valentine’s Day celebration Tuesday, February 14, 2017, complete with a photo board, refreshments, music, and dancing under the perfect balmy Florida skies.

Technology DuvallPhoto board images were captured by both ADT educators and participants using iPads as part of Duvall’s curriculum to develop communication skills and broaden knowledge in technology in its Opportunities Enrichment Center. This form of programming provides essential learning tools used to encourage participants to engage socially and is especially effective for participants who are non-verbal communicators. The iPads were purchased for ADT following the award of the 2015 Greenfeather Grant from Stetson University.
