Enhanced Day Habilitation Services 

The Enhanced Day Habilitation progam provides adults with developmental disabilities with a variety of activities that stimulate senses, teach functional skills, provide meaningful recreation, and further develop physical abilities. This is accomplished through small staff to participant ratios, Speech, Occupational, and Physical Therapies provided on site, as well as a variety of adaptive devices and equipment used to decrease participants' physical limitations. The Enhanced Day Habilitation program utilizes the local community to assist in introducing the participant to new experiences and opportunities, and as a means of introducing the public to persons with disabilities.
