The Arc of Opportunity’s Day Habilitation creates an environment where individuals with disabilities can reach their highest level of independence in a place that inspires their personal growth and development, as well as have a fun, meaningful day that provides custom support that is focused on their individual needs.
This is accomplished through a Mass Health-funded medical model that focuses on physical therapy, occupational therapy, clinical supports, as well as speech and language therapy. A Registered Nurse is available to manage all the medical needs of the individuals, while the rest of our staff combines adult education with occupational and sensorimotor activities.
Our Day Habilitation program uses a variety of therapy to create a personal therapeutic plan focused on the individual growth of each person. Therapy may include:
- Physical Therapy
- Speech and Language Therapy
- Art Therapy
The Day Habilitation team offers both group activities, as well as individualized activities, depending on the preferences and needs of each person.
Day Habilitation provides eight-week courses that combine adult education and therapeutic subjects with occupational and sensorimotor activities. Courses are designed to provide personal growth and development at the individual’s highest level of independence.
Clinical & Nursing Supports
The Day Habilitation nurse is available during all program hours to coordinate Day Habilitation services with health care needs such as administering medications and treatments, monitoring and reporting health status, and documenting changes in the condition of an individual to their physician.
