The mission of the program is for each person to progress to their highest level of independence. Individuals participating in our day program have opportunities to explore different experiences in all areas of their life. Some experiences include self-help, housekeeping/domestic, gross motor, fine motor, sensory stimulation, socialization, communication, and pre-vocational tasks.
The ratio of our staff to program participants ranges between 1:1 and 1:5, depending on the level of service required. Each individual works toward their goals to gain as much independence as possible. This program allows each person to have an active part in creating a meaningful day.
