Summary This paper focuses on components that comprise high-quality adult day programs (ADP) for individuals with developmental disabilities. A review of the research indicates that there are multiple components which are crucial toward creating quality programs, including a focus on self-determination, access to psychotherapy, employment, opportunities for socialization and community involvement, and the necessity of having high-quality staff. The author surveyed four groups, including current and potential consumers, case workers at a local Regional Center and individuals working directly with adults with disabilities. The surveys indicated that some of the most important components of ADP are employment, community involvement, and high-quality, experienced staff.
