Day Program: The Main Street Connection

Participants of this innovative program are afforded the opportunity to use and build upon their current skill set to integrate into the community.  The “Day Program Without Walls” offers a choice of daily activity with more flexibility than a traditional certified site-based program.

The focus of this program is:

• Social Skills

• Academic Training

• Life Skills Development

The program schedule is three days per week on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday from 9:00 am until 2:30 pm. The group works on establishing productive routines that support each individual’s needs and goals.

This is done by offering a flexible schedule that includes a choice of:

• Promote independence and explore community integration opportunities
• Hands-On Training Programs
• Recreational Activities
• Group Outings & More
