NYCSCA | Home Economics/Activities of Daily Living Room (ADL)

SYSTRA is providing architectural design services for the NYCSCA to convert an existing first floor classroom (Room 136) into a new Home Economics/Activities of Daily Living Room (ADL).

Located in Brooklyn, K753 (also known as Aveyron Academy) has over 65 students who have been determined to be at-risk in their daily living skills for numerous reasons including autism, emotional disturbance, seizure disorders, cognitive delays or other economic or language-based difficulties.

Addressing the real-world needs of students who have been determined to be at-risk in their daily living skills for numerous reasons including autism, emotional disturbance, seizure disorders, cognitive delays or other economic or language-based difficulties, SYSTRA has developed alongside NYC School Construction Authority (SCA) a new typology of educational space, the Home Economics/Activities of Daily Living Room (ADL).

This new typology is geared to not only allow students with disabilities to overcome various difficulties in order to succeed in school, but also help them to develop the necessary skills that will prepare them for post-secondary independence. Our design solution provides students with multi-sensory experiences that will provide practical experience for navigating and living in the community.
