Mission Statement

To enrich the lives of adults with severe, multiple 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 turning 21, there are few 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 part of our services is the inclusion of the MOVE® program where our participants have the opportunity to get out of their wheelchairs and into a specialized walker. Aiding in digestion, breathing and muscle tone development, this activity fosters independent skills to the extent possible for each individual. C.E.R.T.S., Inc. is the only MOVE® approved model site in the state of Delaware.
