Daily Living Skills

Helping make everyday matter

The goal of Youth and Adult Living Skills is to help adults who have developmental disabilities to reach their full potential as productive members of society.

The Arc Westchester strives to meet this goal by providing a continuum of day services to individuals depending upon need and personal preference.

Daily Habilitation

Our Day Habilitation program teaches individuals to effectively learn daily living and social service and enjoy life in their community. Individuals learn to be productive members of society by participating in everyday life situations such as shopping, traveling and making decisions.

Often the activities are fun and creative such as cooking contests, photography exhibitions, spelling bees and outdoor festivals.

Without Walls

 Without Walls gives individuals with developmental disabilities the tools to function in society on a daily basis. Activities are delivered entirely in the community and include bowling, movies, museums, library visits and community service work. Participants gain self-confidence, improve social skills and achieve stronger ties with the community.

Choices

Choices is a program for young adults. It combines day habilitation with supported employment services. Unlike typically supported employment, individuals work and volunteer at community sites and are supervised by staff at all times. The experience helps young adults build job and life skills, provides the opportunity to make friends and helps students transition into the adult world. As the program’s title suggests, activities are based on the skills and interests of each participant. 

Youth Connection

Our Youth Connection studios provide young adults with opportunities to build employment skills and experience life in their community alongside their peers. Our Youth Connection studios are located in Yonkers and Mount Kisco for recent high school graduates. The program operates year-round Monday through Friday. CLICK HERE for information.
