Day Habilitation services are habilitative services that are provided through group activities out of the person’s home. Day Habilitation services can assist individuals to acquire, retain or improve their self-help, socialization, and adaptive skills, such as communication, travel and adult interactions. Activities and environments are designed to foster the development of skills and appropriate behavior, greater independence, community inclusion, relationship building, self-advocacy, and informed choice. Additionally, individuals in Day Habilitation often participate in community activities as well as contribute to their communities through volunteering. Full-time and part-time options, Monday through Friday and some Saturdays are available, with transportation provided.
