Upstate Cerebral Palsy's day habilitation programs are site based and also in the community. The day habilitation sites located in Boonville, Sauquoit, Barneveld and Utica offer in-depth services by behavioral specialists, physical and occupational therapists and speech pathologists. These sites host individuals with a variety of abilities, each on specific schedules to improve their skills and quality of life. Individuals may plant flowers in the greenhouse, stretch and work out with therapists, or express their creativity during art class.
Our community based day programs provide individuals the opportunity to interact in public settings within their neighborhoods, enhancing their social skills and building confidence. The activities are individualized and focus on individuals reaching their fullest potential. Making a purchase at a store, volunteering at a hospital or borrowing a book at the library are just a few examples of the weekly activities.
Both our site based and community day habilitation programs provide opportunities for people to learn skills that will enable them to participate as active, vital members of the community.
