Intellectual Disability Day Programs
Point of Hope’s IADL program is designed for those who are interested in improving their personal independence. Activities include (but are not limited to) finding and utilizing resources, preparing meals, shopping, doing housework, and managing finances. The activities and learning strategies are designed to help individuals on the Autism spectrum to be successful as well. Point of Hope can help provide assistance with pre-vocational training; our staff will coordinate efforts with other practitioners based on the needs of our consumer. Some of our consumers actually have jobs/positions within the program, such as restocking the toilet paper or helping to make copies, collate, and staple.
Within this program, our consumers participate in many small group activities such as exercise, dancing, bowling, basketball, computer lab, cooking, sensory room, and community outings. Our consumers enjoy picnics, holiday and birthday celebrations, and other group activities. Consumers can opt to include additional facets into their program day, such as quiet time or additional sensory room time, if they need it.
This is a recreation-based program offering services for individuals with specific physical, emotional, and cognitive needs. We design our individualized program to meet the needs and interests of our consumers. Point of Hope provides opportunities for our consumers to participate in the surrounding community, including but not limited to bowling, eating out, attending concerts, and participating in activities with other local day programs.
