The goal of Adult Living Skills is to help adults who have developmental disabilities to reach their full potential as productive members of society.
Day Habilitation – Site Based (OMRDD funded thru Medicaid Waiver)
Day Habilitation teaches individuals to effectively utilize community services. Individuals learn to be productive members of society through instruction in the community concerning such daily living skills as shopping, traveling and making choices. Often the activities are fun and highly creative such as cooking contests, photography exhibitions, spelling bees and outdoor festivals. Individuals are picked up and dropped off at their residence but services are provided out of a site based location.
Day Habilitation – Community Based (OMRDD funded thru Medicaid Waiver)
Community based gives individuals with developmental disabilities the tools to function in society on a daily basis. Activities are delivered entirely in the community and may include bowling, movies, museums, library visits and community service work. Participants gain self-confidence, improve social skills and achieve stronger ties with the community. Individuals are picked up and dropped off at their residence.
Blended Day Habilitation and Supported Employment (OMRDD funded thru Medicaid Waiver)
This combines day habilitation with supported employment services. Unlike typical supported employment, individuals work and volunteer at community sites and are supervised by staff at all times. The experience helps young adults build job and life skills, provides the opportunity to make friends and helps students transition into the adult world. As the program’s title suggests, activities are based on the skills and interests of each participant. Transportation may be available where individuals are picked up and dropped off at their residence.
