A sensory room is a room specially designed to develop an individual's sense, usually through special lighting, music, and objects. It can be used as therapy for children and adults with limited communication skills. The ADT uses sensory assistive technology to create stimulating experiences for our individuals. The program aids in goal achievements outlined in Individualized Plans (IP). Ann Storck Center’s vision is to provide an environment in which the individuals will thrive through increased mental and physical stimulation.
Vocational training at Ann Storck Center involves focusing on life skills to assist the individuals served to be able to build independence. These are skills that will allow the individuals to better communicate their needs and desires. Our micro-enterprise store located in the ADT provides a wonderful learning environment where individuals can learn skills such as pricing inventory, selling a product, and running a cash register. Individuals can experience the pride in seeing their merchandise purchased.

Great News! ADT partnered with Broward County TOPS to provide transportation services eligible participants who attend the program. We are proud to offer you the opportunity to participate in this new program, ASC’s Agency Coordinated Transportation program (ACT).
The goal of the ACT program is to provide a better experience for the individuals we serve by providing safe, reliable and timely transportation services through the agency itself. This program is staffed with professional drivers, trained to work with Ann Storck Center’s ADT participants, with safe driving records, complete background checks, and the highest professional standards. The ACT program will be taking the place of Broward County TOPs, strictly for transportation service to and from the Adult Day Training program. Similar to your present service, transportation will be provided Monday to Friday, on the days when the ADT is operating. This service will not affect the participant’s eligibility or ability to schedule trips through Broward County TOPS for any transportation service. If you are interested in participating, please call the administration office at (954) 584-8000 Ext: 376, or email firstname.lastname@example.org to request more information.
