Day Habilitation is a person-centered program serving individuals with developmental disabilities who are 21 years and older. The program is traditional in that class-room like environments offer opportunities to acquire new skills in a structured setting. The program is non-traditional in that our staff actively seek opportunities for participants to acquire skills, develop relationships and enhance life experiences outside the classroom walls and in the community. The participants’ personal interests and goals drive the program planning process while our caring and dedicated staff provide necessary health, safety and wellness supports.
Our new program, located at 1500 Hempstead Turnpike in East Meadow, is currently under construction. Each Activity Room is being designed around a theme. Themes were chosen based upon the diverse array of interests of the people we serve. There will be something for everyone with rooms designed for arts and crafts, horticulture, a computer lab, a store front for vocational training, a beauty parlor, exercise, meditation, a news room and a library. Look for our new program in the Fall!
