Adult Disability Services

Adult Disability Services San DiegoThe XciteSteps Adult Program was created to support, enrich and empower adults in San Diego who have it harder than the average person due to a developmental or cognitive disability and give them the personalized attention encouragement, skills and emotional support to lead happy and fulfilled lives.

Furthering job, social or physical development, enjoying recreational activities, exercising and having the company of friends are all important to a person’s psyche. An adult experiencing challenges may have a harder time establishing and managing these needs and XciteSteps provides the structured and balanced support to encourage a healthy lifestyle.

Our Approach

All our services are tailored to each individual using a big brother/big sister model to assist them through their struggles. The role that the “cool” life style coach plays enables them to reach an adult on a different level than parents, therapists, and educators and coax an overall maturation.

“Providing opportunities for adults to lead fulfilled and enriched lifestyles”

Filling the Gap

As children and teens who experience a disability grow older, less opportunities become available for them to receive support to lead fulfilled lifestyles. Friendships, jobs, hobbies, sports, relationships become challenging to maintain and isolation is more common than inclusion. XciteSteps’ mission is to support and empower adults to enrich their San Diego lifestyle and achieve a sense of fulfillment.

Measuring Success

A personalized Achievement Plan is constructed for every adult with input from all concerned parties, which may include, parents, the adult, therapists, and job affiliates. Our lifestyle coaches document the adult’s progress and makes suggestions and improvements. These Performance Tracking Sheets are sent to the parents every two weeks and the Achievement Plan is re-evaluated every three months.

The Outdoor Adventure Club meets every Monday for fitness, fresh air, and body movement. Participants enjoy local nature hikes, team sports, yoga, and beach walks.

Our Current Enrichment Programs Include:

Participants work with personal job (or “success”) coach that will help to map out achievable goals, develop job ready skills, craft an effective resume, prepare for interviews, and excel on the job. Success coaches work with individuals at home, and out in the community, in order to help each participant find their strengths, build their confidence, and design a plan of action.
