BEYOND 21 SPECIAL NEEDS PROGRAM

What We Offer - in more detail...

We go Above and Beyond your typical day program!

Our day program serves adults 21+ with developmental disabilities.  We have 2 sessions to choose from, a morning and an afternoon session.  Both sessions emphasize daily living skills, pre-vocational training, socialization and recreation.  Most days, our participants travel into our local community to practice and reinforce these skills.  Additional programming includes but is not limited to: sign language, Cosmetology, Jewelry making, Cooking, and volunteering within the community.  

Transportation
