As a center based program we are prepared and licensed to have all consumer at the program everyday, all day. The program has especially designed and decorated the building to be attractive and appealing to the consumers as well as the staff that work there. These efforts have been rewarded with respect from both parties and efforts on their behalf to keep the building well maintained.
The decor is the first introduction of how we 'feel' about the consumer the next thing is to 'listen' to the consumer on what they want. We have numerous classrooms and numerous direct care staff to choose from and then a variety of programs to choose from. The purpose of the choices is for the consumer to feel a sense of empowerment and then a commitment to the program and their goals.
