The Supplemental Group Day Habilitation Services are active and dynamic programs which provide support and structure for adults with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and intellectual/developmental disabilities who live at home with family or within the Family Care system. Valued Outcomes are developed to address each individual’s strengths, needs and preferences with a focus on socialization, independent living, community awareness and safety, and maintaining/enhancing health skills. These skills also help to support our consumers in their other daily activities which varies from supported work, prevoc programs, and full-time Day Habilitation.
