With the individual's interests in mind, the program offers:
- Music therapy
- Computer and iPad use
- Community outings are also incorporated into weekly schedules so that all can work on specific therapeutic objectives while having fun in the community.
ACES (Adult Community Experiences and Services)
A program within Day Habilitation for those with autism, individuals in the ACES program use daily community experiences to learn life skills. By volunteering multiple times a week with local nonprofits, individuals in this program are able to contribute toward improving the community while learning life skills.
We have worked with the Dedham Food Pantry, Traveling Meals, and Ethos Elder Service, as as well as many other organizations.
