What We Do
Our CBDS program is designed to provide personalized, interest-based community supports and training for people with developmental disabilities and Autism. These services provide the opportunity to enthusiastically engage in and enjoy a diverse array of community activities while promoting the development of interpersonal communication and social skills that are critical to independence and positive community interaction. Participants in the CBDS program enjoy community skill building and integration activities, higher and vocational education exploration, employment training, and volunteer opportunities.
Our CBDS program is provided by skilled staff members in structured group settings. Program staff are knowledgeable of member interests, vision, capability, and goals enabling them to create schedules with member input, ensuring services are always meaningful and person-centered.
Staff members are trained in CPR, First Aid, Safety Care, and Medication Administration. The CBDS staff and clients work with a licensed behavioral clinician to provide clinical consultation, who helps provide guidance based on individual needs.
Our CBDS program provides activities conducive to the development of interpersonal and social skills critical to positive community interaction. Participants work on the development of life skills and learn to share the company of others in their community. Activities include community outings, education, employment training, volunteering opportunities, and exercise programs.
