We provide programming that focuses on areas that create the most inclusive, innovative and positive environment for our students.
On a weekly basis individuals enjoy listening, singing and playing instruments. Music helps promote socialization, communication, memorization, cognitive function, self expression and motor skills.
Our students visit a pool and work one-on-one with a hydro-therapist. The water limits stress on joints and reduces pain, muscle tightness and spasms. It increases mobility, greatly helping with muscle tone, lung capacity, flexibility and overall wellness.
Specially trained dogs visit the program to work with individuals who like to interact with pets. Physical contact can help lower blood pressure and provide stress relief. The interaction also promotes gentleness, caring and safety with pets.

Art is a special way to communicate for those in our care. Art sessions develop an individual’s unique abilities and allow them a way to express themselves. Art techniques include drawing, mosaics, painting and more. These sessions help build fine motor skills, increase attention span, promote problem solving and provide an opportunity to make choices.
Our program is community focused and we provide daily opportunities for individuals to see and explore the world around us. Participants engage with the community through social events, plays, musicals, sporting events, museums, shopping and more.
Each day, our students have the opportunity to participate in life skill such as gardening, personal care and hygiene, safety awareness, money management skills and more.
