Community Access is offered in an individual or a group setting.
Community Access-Group services are designed to assist the participant
in acquiring, retaining, or improving self-help, socialization, and adaptive skills required for active community participation
and independent functioning outside the participant's home or family home. Activities may include accompanying individuals
to the grocery store, or eating establishments; teaching an individual how to participate in appropriate social and recreational
activities; and assessing other activities of community living. These services are provided in a group setting.
Community Access - Individual:
Community Access-Individual services are designed to provide one-on-one
services to the participant. This involves one staff member assisting one participant in developing community integration
skills. Participants will realize the benefits of community involvement as they are more fully aware of activities such
as social, recreational, and leisure activities. Examples of this service may include assisting the individual in seeking
a water color painting class at the local recreation center.
