  • Open Tuesday - Fridays and Saturdays.

  • Phase one of the program, the Community Discovery phase, will be the longest phase, and for some program participants, the only phase, as we will be visiting new and exciting as well as favorite and some challenging venues daily. This phase is all about figuring out what we like, what we are good at, and what will make us happy long term. This phase of the CCP program can be extended and be the sole focus for some.

  • This program phase can start at age 18 and can focus solely on practicing community, recreational, and social skills.

  • The Community Discovery only can be ongoing and have more flexible days of attendance per team, peer groups, and program logistics.

  • The Community Discovery phase will be our Saturday program.

  • Activities we will focus on:

  • Volunteering or working in community outreach venues practicing social and vocational skills

  • Shopping, cooking, and activities that build daily living skills

  • Visiting museums, the zoo, aquarium, etc.

  • Accessing inclusive social, recreational, educational, and cultural venues.

  • Building safety and community navigation skills in a variety of inclusive community settings.

  • Participating in integrated recreational activities with neurotypical adults (e.g., clubs, community centers, recreation programs, YMCA, etc.)

  • Visiting college and community college campuses, college sporting events or other cultural venues to hang out with age-appropriate peers if part of a transition plan.

  • Riding public transportation - the bus, trolley, train, ferry, etc. 

  • Identifying programs, supports, and venues that build skills and allow for maximum community integration.

  • Visiting adult programs and potential job or volunteer venues per transition plan.

  • Support ratio starts at one-to-one staffing, but the goal will be to fade support to two-or-three-to-one within this phase, while taking into consideration the individual, practical community safety, social skill, communication, and behavioral support needs of the participant necessitated for safe and successful community integration.
