Day Services

Community Based Day Support

Community Based Day Support Services are designed to provide various community supports and training for people with developmental disabilities. Services provide the opportunity to enthusiastically engage in and enjoy a number of community activities while promoting independence. Supports are provided in the following areas: Community Skill Building and Integration; Education; Employment Training; Volunteer Opportunities.

To qualify for Community Based Day Supports, a person must be at least 22 years of age, and qualify for services through the Department of Developmental Services (DDS).

The program operates Monday-Friday. Program hours are 6 hours daily, from 8:30 a.m.-2:30 p.m.

AEI supports are provided by skilled staff members in a structured group setting. These programs are designed around the person's goals, interests and ability levels to ensure they receive the services that are most meaningful to them.

Staff members are trained in CPR, First Aid, NVMAB and MAP. The CBDS staff and clients work with a licensed behavioral clinician to provide clinical consultation, who helps provide guidance based on individual needs.


   

AEI's CBDS program provides activities conducive to the development of interpersonal and social skills critical to positive community interaction. Participants work on the development of life skills and learn to share the company of others in their community. Activities include community outings, education, employment training, volunteering opportunities, cooking groups and exercise programs.
