Services for Individuals with Developmental Disabilities
Day Habilitation Program
Our Day Habilitation Program provides daytime educational and recreational activities for individuals who are developmentally disabled and maybe blind or visually impaired. Many of these clients have cerebral palsy, epilepsy, or autism. In this program they work on basic living skills and participate in a variety of community-based activities. Programs are specially designed to boost the clients’ self-confidence and self-esteem.
In-Home Residential Rehabilitation
Our In-Home Residential Rehabilitation is a service that provides trained staff to provide services and training to consumers in their own home or communities.
Our Medicaid Service Coordinator assists people living at home or in an IRA and helps with providing advocacy and service acquisition.
Our Supported Employment program helps people who are blind with additional disabilities to obtain and sustain paid employment in their own communities. Typical support services include job development and training, travel training, job modification, and ongoing follow-up services to help employees retain their jobs.
Several clients who participate in the Day Habilitation Program live in our Community Residence in Wantagh. The residence is staffed 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Residents are involved with all activities related to home life, including recreation such as games, movies, and television, as well as group outings on the weekends.
