RMA LOTTSFORD CENTER provides programs to adults who have developmental disabilities. While there are no quick fix or countermeasure for developmental disabilities, people with these cognitive disorders can still achieve personal and professional fulfillment. It is our mission at RMA LOTTSFORD CENTER to educate and empower individuals with developmental disabilities to realize their full potential.
The RMA LOTTSFORD Center provides a positive environment, where individuals with developmental disabilities are served, in heterogeneous groups both on site and in community settings. The program focuses on FUNCTIONAL CURRICULUM, LIFE SKILLS TRAINING and RECREATIONAL SKILLS. Individuals are given ongoing opportunities to participate and share in adult-appropriate activities. Curriculum training includes; community work training, arts & crafts (learning design, developing critical fine motor, visual motor, and sensory motor skills), basic gardening, landscaping/horticulture, health (physical fitness), vocational training and development, social awareness, communication skills, meal preparation, computer skills, independent living skills, community integration, self-care, education for sexuality, leisure, recreation skills development, self-advocacy, community safety and access training. Each training curriculum is based on the functional skills philosophy.
The RMA Lottsford Activity Center program maintains a 1:4 ratio (1 program staff to 4 consumers). During community activities, the staff-to-consumer ratio required is 2:6 (2 program staff to 6 consumers) to insure safety, situations for natural support, and adequate skills development to assist consumers in attaining IP/PCP goals and objectives.
