Las Trampas Exercises
Our Dance/Exercise Room is designed to provide individuals with opportunities for physical conditioning and is accessible to people with severe physical disabilities. Classes change frequently and may include: basic movement, yoga, Tai Chi, Zumba, wheelchair and in-seat exercise, and mindfulness.
Las Trampas Cooks
At the end of most months, the participants of the Adult Day Program host a lunch for the entire program after spending several weeks learning how to use kitchen equipment, choose a menu, shop for ingredients and then plan and prepare the meal.
Las Trampas Grows
Individuals learn the value of choosing to grow plants (including some fruits and vegetables). Participants learn to purchase seeds and plants, plant them in the garden, and tend them as they grow.
Las Trampas Pays

Coming Soon-Assistive Technology/Alternative & Augmentative Communication Room
Many of the individuals served in the Adult Day Program Services have physical and communicative disorders that impede success. The impact of these disorders can be alleviated through the use of assistive technologies. Las Trampas is in the process of acquiring computer software and hardware to assist individuals who are considered nonverbal or who have limited communication to express their needs and desires.
