OakLeaf Day Services

OakLeaf Day Services is designed to assist adults with a wide range of developmental disabilities to acquire, retain or improve their quality of life.  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 of needs and preferences, an individual plan is developed each year to identify desired outcomes.  The program uses a person-centered approach to ensure that each person served receives care and support tailored to their individual needs.  Referrals to special services are available, including physical, occupational and speech/language therapies, behavioral health services, and assistive technology services. Individuals have meaningful opportunities to accept new social challenges, and to make informed choices about community employment and community activities they may want to participate in, based on their level of interest and desired level of involvement.
