NYAPRS is proud to support the PROS Community with curricula developed by NYAPRS specifically for PROS providers working with individuals on their Independent Living goals.  These curricula are specifically designed to assist people living in Adult Homes and State Psychiatric Centers who are participating in your PROS programs.  The focus of these curricula is to assist the people you work with to increase their confidence and their skills to live independently in the community.

 

Through NYS Office of Mental Health funding, NYAPRS will assist PROS programs in two ways:

  1. Develop curricula for the Adult Home population attending PROS programs.
  2. Provide the administrative infrastructure to process your Encounter Visit Payments.

Over the course of the next few years, NYAPRS will use this website to upload and house the curricula created for this project.  The curricula are at no cost to you and we encourage you to review and implement as many as you like.  Our curricula will fall into the following categories:

  • GOAL SETTING
  • LIVING
  • WORKING
  • LEARNING
  • SOCIALIZING
  • HEALTH AND WELLNESS

Each category will have a number of curricula designed to support the person to increase their skills in each area of focus.

 

HOW DO I GET THE CURRICULA?

Each curriculum will be uploaded and we will send a notification email to everyone who registers with this website.  If you have yet to register, please go to the Home Page and register.  It is free of charge and will provide you with complete access to the curricula designed for this project as well as access to the rest of our Curricula Library.
