Speech Language Pathologist (Former Employee) – Brooklyn, NY – January 12, 2018
This has been the worst, saddest place I have ever worked in my life. Very few workers care for the children/ teenagers. People talk down on those with disabilities. There is absolutely no management or structure. The workers are all miserable, nobody smiles and everyone talks about you. The worst part were how the children were treated.. broke my heart I had to leave.
I hope you like driving and give him meds cuz you're going to do it all the time

Worst job I ever had the only great thing come out of it is the individuals but some of them were even just intolerable management made it hard to work there in the best day of my life is when they fired me I was jumping for joy it was like a burden off my chest
Short breaks short lunch

Manager (Habilitation Specialist) (Current Employee) – Brooklyn, NY – October 4, 2017
I enjoyed my work life balance while working with Adapt community network. Typical 40 hours, great clients and great conversation with the clients. I would recommend anyone working here to do it if you don't care about a high salary. The participants in the program are ALWAYS GREAT.
Great work life balance
Management doesn't care about management staff. You're very disposable.
Staff (Former Employee) – New York, NY – July 31, 2017
At this agency they state there is room for growth and promotions but I have never seen it. I applied for so many positions that i qualify yet not even a call back let alone a interview. There are some directors like family supports that hold secret interviews to make it look as though they are being fair to all coworkers when instead its about the color of your skin.
Occasionally Taxing, but enjoyable work environment
HABILITATION SPECIALIST (Current Employee) – New York, NY – July 13, 2017
Being at Adapt Community Network, formerly known as UCP (United Cerebral Palsy) I have learned that a job title can also involve wearing many hats as well. Putting the individuals first is priority. Making sure that they are being engaged in active treatment on a day to day basis is important also. My main objective is creating opportunities for people with disabilities to lead independent and fulfilling lives. I enjoy getting to know the individuals i serve and building positive relationships.
Day Habilitation Assistant (Former Employee) – Bronx, NY – July 8, 2017
miserable staff, too much work for too little money Rules only adhere to certain workers. Worst job that I ever took. They are nothing but lies. The management does not care about its workers like they say they do. I would not recommend this job to anyone.
Habilitation Assistant (Current Employee) – Bronx, NY – June 6, 2017
assisting individuals with disabilities on a daily basis by helping them live a normal fulfilled life which they would not be able to do so on their own. The individuals have a set task and goal they work on everyday to enhance their skills and ability to function in a community on their own.
