Adam’s Best Driving School!
Adam’s Place has partnered with Land Rover and Academic Coaching Services and opened Adam’s Best Driving School here in town! Come check us out. We offer two programs:
- 30-hour instruction classroom
- Behind-The-Wheel training with our partner Nevada Driving School
In an effort to improve our family centered care here at Adam’s Place we have developed monthly themes for the upcoming program year. Starting in September each support group will have age appropriate activities centered on a common theme to enhance the healing experience. The monthly themes are designed to give group members the opportunity to begin the healing process through sharing their own story and hearing the stories of others. The monthly themes will also teach coping skills to help you through the most difficult day and give you an opportunity to discover new traditions and ideas on how to keep loved ones present in your hearts and in your memories.
