Our Day Program is designed to enable individuals to reach his/her maximum potential, which would allow each person served to move into the most independent setting possible and participate in society to the fullest extent of their capabilities. While at the Day Program persons receiving services work on various developmental areas such as: self-care, self-direction, social skills, receptive/expressive language, learning and capacity for independent living.
Goals are written to suit each person’s interests and needs. These goals consist of various areas of training to increase independence of daily life events. Some examples of goals would be preparing a small meal, learning to make decisions, economic self-sufficiency, self-care, self-direction, social skills, receptive/expressive language, learning and capacity for independent living.
We strive to provide social activities throughout the year. We celebrate birthdays by having a dance at the end of every month and invite everyone to attend. Many people receiving services participate in the annual Talent Show at the Vaughn-Blumberg Center. These participants also travel to perform for other local agencies. Persons receiving services also participate in monthly field trips and special events at the center and in the community. We have visited radio and television stations, the local library, restaurants, parks, Montgomery Zoo and other local places.
