Day Habilitation Program
Like all our programs, Day Habilitation is approached with a sense of creativity and a commitment to innovation. We create environments that are bright, modern and comfortable, staffed by caring and compassionate professionals.
We’re always looking for new and better ways to help people become more engaged and reach their maximum potential in physical, emotional and social abilities, no matter how significant their medical or therapeutic needs. Everything we do is tied to an improved living experience and fostering independence. Innovation has been our hallmark since day one, and our list of therapies and activities is long and getting longer all the time.
Ultimately, Day Habilitation focuses on helping each individual overcome the obstacles that interfere with skills and development or stand in the way of their goals. And that’s a big step on the path to independence.
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.
