Day Habilitation

Day Habilitation

The Day Habilitation program is a therapeutic, community-based program for adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities. We offer an array of comprehensive clinical services, nursing support, and developmental skills training at our beautiful, newly renovated facility. This vital program assists individuals in maintaining and improving their level of independence and functional ability within the areas of self-help, sensorimotor skills, communication, independent living skills, personal relationships, behavioral skills, self-determination skills, wellness, and community integration.

Eligibility:

Individuals must be 22 years old with a diagnosis of an intellectual and/or developmental disability and receive MassHealth, either Standard or CommonHealth. Individuals must also be in need of developmental skills training and clinical oversight.
