Divine Providence Village - ATF
1799 South Sproul Road
Springfield PA 19064
(610) 543-3380
The Adult Training Facility (ATF) at Don Guanella Village, licensed by the Pennsylvania Department of Public Welfare and Department of Aging, has program locations at the Divine Providence Village Annex and at the Cardinal Krol Center. The ATF offers year-round day support designed specifically for adults with severe to profound mental retardation. Many participants are very physically and medically involved and require extensive levels of support. An initial assessment to measure levels of functional and daily living skills is completed upon admission. From this assessment, an interdisciplinary team - consisting of the individual, direct care staff, program specialists, the individual's family or guardian, advocates, a representative from the funding agency, and any other people involved in the individual's life - develops an Individual Program Plan (IPP). The IPP, in turn, drives the delivery of service. The mission of the program is for each person to progress to their own highest level of independence and environmental control. The current ratio of staff to program participants ranges between 1:3 and 1:6, based on the level of service required. Currently, 87 individuals, who range in age from 23 to the elderly, receive ATF services. Hours of operations are 9:00am to 3:30pm, Monday through Friday. Established legal holidays and a Christmas break are the only regularly scheduled closings of the program. The ATF emphasizes functional life skills, personal management, community involvement, and domestic and recreational/leisure activities. Individuals participating in the AFT have opportunities to explore different experiences in all areas of their life. Some experiences include self-help, housekeeping/domestic, gross motor, fine motor, sensory stimulation, socialization, communication, and pre-vocational tasks. Each individual works toward goals to gain as much independence as possible. This program allows each person to have an active part in having a meaningful day.
