Specific Natural Activity Program
(SNAP) Curriculum
What is SNAP Curriculum?

The SNAP curriculum includes a series of topics - over
200 - dealing with a variety of typical issues faced by
adults with developmental disabilities. The material was
written to assist agency staff, parents, counselors,
teachers, or anyone working with a Special Needs
population in presenting basic skills training in an adult
age appropriate forum, and provides continuity to
presentation of skills training within your program.

Each curriculum was developed from an actual person
centered individual service plan, and includes a
performance objective, list of materials, and suggestions
for instruction.

The SNAP curriculum is also an excellent staff training tool
as it gives new staff an idea of the types of issues facing
adults with developmental disabilities, and provides
suggestions of ways to help consumers overcome their
barriers. This ensures that staff have not omitted a
particular step in skills training and that the client receives
reasonably sized pieces of information. Instruction is not
meant to be overwhelming.
