Individuals are served at the Centers based upon their unique needs

Trained Activity Center staff use an objective assessment scale to determine the skill levels of each participant. The scale evaluates all areas of daily living, from domestic to vocational activity, and results in a profile summary that reflects the individual’s strengths and needs. Activity Center staff use the profile summary to develop goals that will help the individual thrive in the home, at work, and in the community at large.

Individualized support plans encourage the individual to develop new skills and to maintain or improve abilities in current skill areas. The major emphasis of programming is placed on increasing independence through essential skills like self-care, vocational development, intellectual and communication skills, social and personal development, and leisure activities and interests.

Adult Training Services places an emphasis on integration into the community, by scheduling frequent field trips and volunteer activities such as delivering Meals on Wheels, maintaining the grounds along a stretch of “adopted” highway, and helping out at the Red Cross, among others.
