OakLeaf Day Services

OakLeaf Day Services is designed to assist individuals with multiple and severe disabilities to acquire, retain or improve their highest potential quality of life and development.  Services are offered weekdays in a safe, comfortable and pleasant environment.  Individuals are helped to develop personal goals that will enhance their skill development, social connections, community membership, independence and increase opportunities for personal choice.  Based on personal assessment, need and preference, and client preference an individual plan is developed each year to identify and specify goals.  The program utilizes a person-centered planning process to ensure that each client receives support tailored to their individual needs.  Access and referrals to special services are available, including transportation services, physical, occupational and speech/language therapies, psychological services, rehab engineering and assistive technology computer access. Individuals have meaningful opportunities to accept new social challenges, and to make informed choices about community employment and community-based activities they may want to participate in, based on their level of interest and desired level of involvement.
