Community involvement of individuals with cognitive disabilities is important for their overall health. It increases quality of life, improves socials skills, decreases social stigmas, increases self-determination, and it gives more power to these individuals. The aim of this project to give educators what they need to advocate for these individuals, doing what they can to get them involved and bringing down barriers that keep them from being active members in the community. This is in the form of a resource handbook designed to evaluate adult day programs.
