 MANSFIELD CONNECTIONS                    

In September 2015, AEI opened up its second day habilitation program, Mansfield Connections.

Mansfield Connections provides life skills, social opportunities, and opportunities to make friendships with each other and in the community. Our goal at Mansfield Connections is for individuals to learn various life-enhancing skills, participate in stimulating activities, achieve greater self-esteem, and achieve a strong committed presence through an active schedule of volunteerism.

Focused on community involvement, participants have worked on hand painted trash barrels for the Trash Can Be Beautiful program hosted by Keep Mansfield Beautiful. As a group, they decide what they would like to paint and with assistance from the staff, they were able to complete three barrels for the town of Mansfield.  

         

An interdisciplinary team including a Registered Nurse, Behavioral Clinician, Speech Therapist, and Developmental Specialist design individualized programs addressing the skills, knowledge, and abilities one needs to live as independently as possible.

Testimonials

"Heather, I just wanted to let you know how nice it has been to hear Josh come home and talk about the things he is participating in at the program.  He loved the field trip and he really likes the library; he told me about the books he looked at.  I was also thrilled to hear that he did meals on wheels.  He told me that he "brought people their food" and he seemed to enjoy it.

I really can't tell you the peace of mind that it has given me.  So I want to thank you and everyone there who obviously worked hard to make this a positive transition for Josh.  We appreciate everything."
