We provide a day program throughout the week that offers a choice of either one to one sessions or joining our day program and meeting new friends.

We also offer weekend respite to families, providing a break for the families from the demands of caring for their special needs adult. Our goals are to work towards independence, teaching life skills and social skills in a fun, safe and relaxed enviroment. Our fun packed weekend begin on friday @ 5pm with movies night/board games and popcorn through to sunday @ 3pm.


The day programs are for adults 18 years and older. The intial assessment would be arranged in their own homes. Where we will discuss individual needs, goals and then a visit to the day program would be scheduled.

The respite service is offered to teenagers through to adults.
