Community exploration for young adults with developmental disabilities.
Getting out into the world is healthy for the mind and spirit. Our staff supports community exploration for young adults with developmental disabilities by helping them learn and practice the social, safety and life skills necessary to be successful in community life. PAI helps young adults with intellectual and developmental disability (IDD), autism spectrum disorder and traumatic brain injury become active members of the community. Staff members focus on individual needs, working with clients to develop the specific skills they need to participate in recreational and other activities, such as bowling, shopping, and attending community events and theater performances.
At PAI, we believe that being involved in the community promotes independence and enhances the quality of life for people with disabilities. Our highly trained staff members teach clients how to participate in activities and events that help them integrate with others in the local community. PAI day programs and services prepare clients to participate in activities that develop their social skills and promote inclusion in community life. We provide opportunities to develop relationships both inside and outside of PAI, so that clients can learn, practice and apply life skills that promote greater independence.
