The Wood-Ridge Adult Training Center recently enjoyed a day trip to The Palisades Interstate Englewood and Alpine Lookouts. We discussed the Hudson River that divides New Jersey from New York, as well as, the George Washington Bridge that provides access for cars and walkers into N.Y. We learned that The Palisades are a National Historic and Natural Landmark, and that from the shoreline of the George Washington Bridge to Alpine State Line Lookout, there are over 30 miles of hiking trails and over 2500 acres of wild uplands and cliffs. The view was spectacular.
At the Wood Ridge Program adults learn and practice daily social skills and self-advocacy.
The self-advocacy process is simply the everyday interaction with people in the adult’s life. Adults are empowered and encouraged to request, inquire, and ask questions pertaining to their needs and want both in-house and in the community.
