Providing exceptional one-on-one Life Skills Coaching and Adult Social Clubs for young adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities, as they strive for a more engaging, active, and sustainable transition to adulthood.

Specialized Services for Young Adults

Xcite Steps Adults offers several different programs and services for young adults with developmental and intellectual disabilities. We believe in supporting the individual as they transition into young adulthood by:

  • building skills and structure 
  • increasing self advocacy
  • boosting confidence
  • expanding social exposure
  • encouraging self-reliance

Our programs and services are centered on around a philosophy of exploration, inclusion, exposure, practice, and experience.  We emphasize and encourage a healthy transition in our young adults, to where they feel, act, and are treated as the amazing young people that they are.


Individual Life Skills Coaching

Xcite Steps Adults provides individualized one-on-one coaching services, with an emphasis on skill building, where young adults can work on their goals in natural, supportive, and engaging community settings.

Clients in the coaching programs follow a Service Plan that outlines their social, vocational, and self-management goals.  This document is the client’s roadmap to success with their coach.

We help clients add valuable work experience to their resumes through internships and volunteer positions. We also help to build networks and connections for social and vocational opportunities.  Clients are coached on how to organize and execute their weekly tasks and responsibilities – and take on more for themselves.  We also assist clients with designing education and career plans, and we ensure that they have a regular, active young adult social life.


Our clients often need help in the following areas:

  • Social Skill Development
  • Time Management, Planning, and Organization
  • Job Skill Development and Networking
  • Campus Support
  • Self-Awareness Skills
  • Time Management and Executive Functioning
  • Self-Reliance and Self-Confidence
  • Budgeting and Financial Literacy
  • Transportation Options and Education
  • Self-Advocacy and Community Integration
  • Balanced Nutritional Meal Planning
  • Greater Well-Being
  • Recreation and Fitness
  • Career and Lifestyle Planning

Our coaching programs are primarily funded through the San Diego Regional Center.   We also provide coaching services through private pay options as well.  For more information on our Regional Center funded services, click here.
