What We Do

Day Habilitation Services

  • The Day Habilitationprogram for adults with developmental disabilities aims at improving the quality of their lives, as well as their overall level of functioning and independence in the community. We are in a beautiful setting by the ocean and Webb State Park, so our individuals take advantage of the many walking paths surrounding us. In June 2019, a $750,000 renovation was completed that created a space that is used for expanded activities, programs, and therapy services. Vital structural and mechanical repairs have increased the safety, quality and functionality of our space. This new, modern and multi-purpose facility expanded program space by 3,000 sq. ft. and includes a computer lab, sensory room, fitness room, modernized kitchen and lunch rooms, senior lounge, rehab room, oversized classrooms for activities of daily living, developmental skills training and therapies, and multi-purpose areas that can used collaboratively by the entire Arc community.

    We customize our day habilitation service plan based on an individual's learning ability, interests and therapeutic and nursing needs. We offer an array of services such as physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, BCBA-level behavior management and nursing supervision.

    Our program supports individuals with a fitness program, multi-sensory room, senior lounge and adaptive therapeutic equipment. We also offer a skill development program focusing on skills such as gross and fine motor, communication, social, independent living shills, wellness, behavior management, community participation and other activities of daily living. Measurable goals and objectives are developed that sets forth an integrated program of activities and therapies aimed at achieving those stated goals. The individuals who attend The Arc’s Day Habilitation program are supported by a director, program manager, case manager, healthcare supervisor, rehab therapy assistant and developmental specialists. We also staff physical, occupational, speech therapists and behavioral clinicians.

    “The staff members in the day habilitation program are commended for the care, respect, empathy, and attention provided to the individuals served. The knowledge that the staff members have regarding the individuals served and their relationships and communication with families and other care givers enable the staff members to support and advocate the individuals. -CARF International.

  • “The small class size, quiet environment, and ‘family feel’ of the day program hold strong appeal for the organization’s funding source.” -CARF International

    “The organization is mission-driven. Its board and staff members are committed to offering a high-quality day program in a pleasant, inviting, well-designed setting that is appropriate to the needs of the persons served. Artwork created by persons served and posters of special activities from the past year adorn the hallways and office walls.” -CARF International
