Adult Development

The Focus Adult Development Programs are day activity programs operated by Focus, Inc. They are licensed, partially funded and monitored by the State of Arkansas. The purpose of the programs is to assist adults with disabilities to grow and learn. These are some of the hallmarks of the programs:

  • Program participants are encouraged to try new activities, to make new friends and to broaden their horizons.
  • Program participants are treated with the respect due to adults and adult behaviors are encouraged, including fulfillment of responsibilities and making as many choices as practical.
  • Independent living skills are stressed, including self-care, adaptive behavior skills and community integration.
  • Focus strives to "teach by doing". Most of our participants have spent many years in structured learning situations. We take our participants out into the community into real-life environments where they can learn functional skills in natural settings.
  • Focus provides a relaxed atmosphere where participants can improve their socialization skills and enjoy their day.
