Day Habilitation Programs:
Dee attends our Davol Street Day Habilitation Program where she receives needed therapies and supports. She also operates her own business, Designs by Dee, where in collaboration with our Employment Services, she designs and prints greeting cards and other printed materials. What makes this so extraordinary is that Dee is an individual with cerebral palsy who communicates through a special software device activated by moving her head.
Twenty years ago, Dee came to Community Connections from the Paul A. Dever State School. These institutions or state school settings offered very limited access to the outside world for people with disabilities. History for people with disabilities dramatically changed when organizations like Community Connections were founded and the majority of our state institutions were closed. For the last 25 years, Community Connections has been proud to provide the highest quality services and opportunities for people with disabilities in their communities.
