Assistive/Enabling Technology and Adaptive Equipment:
This program supports individuals with maintaining or acquiring skills to improve independence in their home, at work or in the community using assistive technology and home and vehicle modifications. Individuals and their caregivers will receive an individualized assessment and recommendations, an overview of available options, timely installation of equipment, and appropriate training.

Autism Services Program:
The Autism Services Program provides therapy using principles of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) to children between the ages of 18 months and 18 years, who have been diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). This program adopts a comprehensive approach in that it includes services to support both the individual with ASD, as well as the entire family unit. Services include teaching behaviors that increase an individual's success both in their home and community environment, as well as assisting family members and caregivers in being involved in the overall therapeutic process.

Facility-Based Support:
This program provides short-term residential and emergency residential services to adults with developmental disabilities, who typically reside in their natural home. Services provide families with temporary relief from meeting the daily care needs of their loved ones in a safe place. The program is a facility-based, non-medical service in which individuals and their families can schedule needed care during the day, evening or overnight. Support needs range from comprehensive one-on-one assistance with all activities of daily living including personal care, eating, bathing and transfers, to less comprehensive assistance for people who are more independent, but still require supervision.

Supported Employment:
Supported Employment services help to ensure an individual's employment in the competitive environment is maintained in a long-term capacity. Services are provided to meet the needs of the individual employed and are designed to support individuals with developing and maintaining the skills needed for successful employment
