John B.SPECIAL SERVICES

Designed to meet the needs of people with physical or other disabilities who have a desire to gain greater independence, our Special Services program meets the long and short-term rehabilitation goals of each individual we serve.

Therapies such as occupational, physical and speech are available with physician authorization. We focus on preventative maintenance programs, cognitive skills, vocational skills, planning exercises, social interaction and community involvement.

Individuals in this program set their own schedules and are encouraged to reach their self-established goals. Each person is also encouraged to reach their maximum potential by re-learning previous life skills such as washing dishes, cleaning laundry and learning new techniques to help them effectively manage their lives.
