The Adult Day Training Program at Options Unlimited provides an opportunity for adults with developmental or intellectual disabilities, that get to be involved in part of the community. Individuals learn different activities of daily living, social, adaptive skills, employment skills, and self advocacy skills that are age appropriate. Speech, Occupational, and Physical therapy services are also offered at the program.
A team including the individual, caregiver, day program staff and other team members (case managers, behavior specialist) meet annually to develop a plan to individualize services and set goals for each individual. Clients then work on their goals through the various activities out in the community as well as planned activities at the center.
Funding for our programs consist of suport from many community partners: The Offcie Of Vocational Rehabilitation (OVR), Medicaid Waivers, Supports for Community Living (SCL) Waiver, Michelle P. Waiver, Metro United Way, Special grants, BINGO Donations, and other fundraisers.
