Mission Statement

To enrich he lives of adults with multiple, severe disabilities and, in turn, their families through an active, personalized day program.

About C.E.R.T.S., Inc.

Once out of the public school system and considered adults at 21, there were no options for adults with severe, multiple disabilities. In response to this need, C.E.R.T.S., Inc. Adult Action Center was founded by a group of concerned parents in search of day services for their adult children. We currently operate locations in Newark and Smyrna to serve this niche population. The staff participant ratio at C.E.R.T.S., Inc. is 1:3 with a full time nurse available due to the complicated medical issues involved. Activities are person-centered with a variety of options offered that include occupational and physical therapies, baking, community outings, painting, pottery and music appreciation just to name a few. A major component of services offered is the MOVE® program where our participants have the opportunity to get out of their wheelchairs and into a specialized, supportive walker. Aiding in digestion, breathing and muscle tone development, this activity fosters independent skills to the fullest extent possible for each individual. C.E.R.T.S., Inc. is the only MOVE® approved model site in the state of Delaware.
