The Adult-Special Needs Assistance Project (A-SNAP)
The Adult-Special Needs Assistance Project (A-SNAP) is delivered to the residents of Miami-Dade County, Florida through Miami-Dade County Public Schools utilizing certified, part-time hourly teachers. The program is targeted at Adults with Disabilities and Senior Adult Learners who are not seeking competitive employment. The program responds to the need to maintain the highest possible level of cognitive ability, halt or reverse intellectual decline, enhance self-esteem, stimulate those who have achieved higher levels of education, enhance creative abilities and promote independence and community living. The educational needs of the program participants will be fostered through a collaborative effort between the affiliated agencies and the adult education centers. The needs of the targeted populations will be individualized/customized through the Adult Individual Educational Plan (AIEP) for Senior Adult Learners and an Addendum to the existing AIEP documentation for Adults with Disabilities.
