The Day Habilitation Program offers active therapeutic services to Medicaid-eligible adults who can benefit from structured learning and recreation. Speech, behavioral, occupational and physical therapies enhance participants' abilities to function independently, relate to others, make choices, and advocate for themselves. Activities of daily living such as cooking, cleaning, and exercising all build a foundation for the expansion of opportunities and the growth of self-esteem.
