Day Habilitation Services

Our Day Habilitation services support adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities in enhancing life skills and expanding their social community.

Day Habilitation consists of providing regularly scheduled activities in a nonresidential setting, separate from the individual’s private residence or other residential living arrangement. We offer:

  • Assistance with acquisition, retention, or improvement in self-help,
  • Socialization and adaptive skills that enhance social development, and
  • Developing skills in performing activities of daily living and community living.

Activities and environments are designed to foster the acquisition of skills, building positive social behavior and interpersonal competence, greater independence and personal choice. Services are furnished consistent with the individual’s person-centered plan.

Day Habilitation services focus on enabling the individual to attain or maintain their maximum potential and are coordinated with any needed therapies in the individual’s person-centered services and supports plan, such as physical, occupational, or speech therapy.
