Our Five Program Pillars
This program is to provide students/clients with instruction in core areas of academics. Individual or small group interaction is designed to create and implement individual goals (Individual Program Plan) for each client with a special need that helps them achieve measurable success in academics areas including math, writing, speech, reading, time management, computers etc. Goals will be set based upon identifying needs from previous school or other training and input from parents/family/caregivers.
This program is based on goals established for the individual with special needs to develop and improve their vocational abilities, introduce new areas of work related training and ultimately to assist in possible income for the client and/or job placement. Examples include administrative, machinery, cleaning, customer service, lawncare, filing, computer skills, inventory, etc.
As a major part of our daily activities, this exercise and training program will help educate, maintain and improve the overall health and fitness of each client we serve with special needs. Using trained trainers and state of the art equipment, each individual is assessed based on their need and level of ability/development. Daily exercise and sports related activities as well as education about health & nutrition are part of the program.
Built in to our mission and philosophies since the beginning, we believe strongly that each citizen with special needs deserves the chance and even the right to be an accepted member of the community. This program ensures our clients are frequently integrating into the community through local events, activities and public organizations. Our recently acquired bus allows us to provide multiple community inclusion events each week such as to museums, zoo’s, festivals, library, sports events, entertainment, tours etc.
Seeking independence is a part of life for every human being. Most all of our clients desire more independence. In addition, their families and caregivers recognize that one day they will no longer be able to take care of their loved one. There is a critical need for us to provide opportunities for developing skills required for them to be semi-independent or independent. Through this program we teach and train individuals with special needs to learn abilities in areas of home living, money management, communication, public transportation, shopping, personal hygiene etc.
