Day Habilitation

Dignity, teamwork and proactive self-direction motivates the participants to discover a greater knowledge about themselves and the world around them

DAY HABILITATION WITHOUT WALLS

Our Day Hab program fully respects the concept of person-centered planning. We remain committed to our mission to support, educate and enhance quality of life for children/adults and their families impacted by Autism Spectrum Disorder(ASD)

Dignity, teamwork and proactive self-direction motivates the participants to discover a greater knowledge about themselves and the world around them. Active community service, such as volunteering at Snug Harbor where participants will work on a variety of workplace skills such as Horticulture, Inventory, Maintenance, and even Admissions. Eggers Ice cream Parlor offers participant’s workforce skills such as making edible arrangements, inventory, and working with their fine motor skills. Additionally, the group actively volunteers for Meals on Wheels, delivering food to elderly community members and to people with disabilities utilizing their own growing abilities by supporting their community in a productive meaningful way. Another volunteer opportunity the group enjoys is various horticulture and organizational tasks around the grounds of Fort Wadsworth, becoming familiar with historical community settings and understanding the importance of maintaining the beauty of the site.

In order to promote healthy living, our ‘Day-Hab’ group has a personal Olympic trainer which all participants will have heightened physicality and a healthier lifestyle. Every Friday all groups dine out in the community at their place of choice. Participants vote weekly on lunch at local restaurants, where they practice making healthy food choices from the menu. A greater understanding of financial responsibility is gained regarding cost of items, tax and appropriate tip for their server, all while promoting measurable opportunity to build self-esteem and social growth. Choice making abilities extend by visits to local supermarkets for healthy dessert items and interacting with the cashiers. Additionally, the participants receive a choice of monthly leisure-based field trips, such as bowling or museums, to work on money management and gain familiarity of different interests.

During the summer and Spring. Travel training is offered through a variety of ways such as the Staten Island Rail, Staten Island Ferry, and the MTA Bus system. During this practice independent skill set’s will be learned such as time management, independent living, and how to navigate in the community.
